Adventist Health Glendale Receives ANCC Magnet Recognition

Adventist Health Glendale has been recognized as a Magnet-designated healthcare organization by American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Magnet Recognition is the highest and most prestigious international distinction a health care organization can receive for nursing. Less than 9% of U.S. hospitals are Magnet-recognized. The recognition represents superior nursing processes that improve nurse satisfaction and retention, unparalleled patient care with a direct link to positive patient outcomes and the highest levels of safety and quality.

The evaluation process for Magnet Recognition at Adventist Health Glendale involved three and a half years of intensive preparations, review and inspections.

“Preparing for Magnet designation, our hospital went through a rigorous process of evaluation by Magnet Recognition Program of ANCC, which involved demonstrating excellence in nursing leadership, staff engagement and satisfaction, patient outcomes and quality of nursing practice,” said Jinhee Nguyen, Adventist Health Glendale patient care executive.

“Our organization is committed to providing the structure to provide evidence-based nursing care, support professional development and create a culture of innovation and excellence in nursing practice," Nguyen continued. "For our patients and their families, this means they can have the utmost confidence in the quality of care they will receive.”
