Magnet Status, Three Times Over
Posted on 07/25/2013
The Cleveland Clinic main campus, family health centers and Children’s Rehabilitation Center have once again achieved recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Magnet®, the highest national credential for nursing excellence, serving as the gold standard for nursing practice.

Main campus achieved distinguished Magnet status in 2003 and was redesignated in 2008, making it one of only 55 hospitals across the globe to have received the elite credential three times. Currently, only 391 of the nearly 6,000 U.S. healthcare organizations have achieved Magnet recognition.

Executive Chief Nursing Officer Kelly Hancock, MSN, RN, credits our highly qualified and engaged nursing staff with showcasing Cleveland Clinic nurses as the best of the best. Magnet-recognized organizations consistently demonstrate:

  • Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help and receipt of discharge information
  • Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue
  • Lower rates of falls
To earn Magnet recognition, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff. An organization that reapplies for Magnet recognition must provide documented evidence of how Magnet concepts, performance and quality were sustained and improved over four-year periods.

Fairview Hospital was recognized as a Magnet Hospital in 2009, and Euclid, Lakewood, Marymount and South Pointe hospitals have all been designated as Pathway Hospitals.
