After extensive review and evaluation of its nursing practices, Capital Health has received Magnet status three times in recognition of its quality patient care, innovations in professional nursing practice, and nursing excellence.
Magnet Recognition is awarded for nursing excellence by The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the world's largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization.
The Magnet Recognition Program® provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of care they can expect to receive, according to the ANCC. Becoming a Magnet hospital means that an organization has met nearly 100 standards developed by the ANCC. The standards must be demonstrated in a very extensive written document and validated by a site visit.
