Rush of honor for Rush University – Magnet Status for Excellence in Nursin

Chicago – Rush University Medical Center has yet again been honored with the Magnet status, given for excellence in nursing. // This is considered to be the highest recognition for nursing services signifying superior nursing care to patients. This is for the second time that Rush University has received this much-coveted status.

Fewer than 50 hospitals in the United States have received Magnet designation twice.

Hospitals that receive Magnet status are noteworthy for their excellence and innovation in nursing, and evidence suggests that organizations with these characteristics deliver better patient outcomes than non-Magnet organizations. Independent studies of Magnet hospitals have shown that they have shorter lengths of patient stays, higher rates of patient satisfaction, increased time spent with patients, lower patient mortality rates, and increased nurse retention rates.

"Receiving Magnet designation again is a testament that our nursing staff continues to provide the very best care to our patients," said Dr. Larry Goodman, president and CEO of Rush. "On behalf of everyone at the medical center, we congratulate the nursing staff on this tremendous achievement and thank them for the hard work they’ve done to earn it."

To earn Magnet status, organizations undergo a vigorous, multi-faceted evaluation. The Magnet appraisal team interviewed more than 350 members of the Rush staff and visited 37 locations, including all nursing units, during a site visit held from April 3 to 6.

The team evaluated Rush’s nursing standards with regard to improving the quality of patient care, providing for patient safety, improving patient satisfaction, and improving the work environment in terms of reducing turnover. The review also considered patient complaints and Rush's standing with professional regulatory organizations.
