BARNES-JEWISH NURSES EARN NURSING'S HIGHEST HONOR FOR CLINICAL EXCELLENCE
FIRST ADULT HOSPITAL IN MISSOURI TO BE RECOGNIZED
In 2003, Barnes-Jewish Hospital was the first adult hospital in Missouri to achieve the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition®. This is the highest international recognition for excellent nursing practice in hospitals.
Barnes-Jewish is among an elite group of hospitals in the U.S. that have maintained this status since the program was launched in 2003.
Magnet recognition symbolizes what patients, physicians and the community have always known: Barnes-Jewish Hospital is home to highly skilled, professional nurses who provide compassionate care.
A REFLECTION OF CALIBER
The Magnet Recognition Program® was developed by the ANCC to recognize health care organizations that provide nursing excellence. The program recognizes quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. The distinction focuses on a hospital’s staff nurses who deliver patient care every day.
