Barnes-Jewish Hospital received its 4th Magnet nursing designation on March 21, 2018. We’re proud to have maintained these superior standards for nursing care for over 15 years.
It is my honor to officially notify you that the commission unanimously voted to credential Barnes-Jewish Hospital as a Magnet organization again. Congratulations. [applause]
I'm just so very proud of our nursing professionals here. Magnet designation for 15 years consecutively speaks to the strength of our nursing program at Barnes-Jewish and makes us all very, very proud.
What it means to be a magnet hospital, it means that you have a track record of creating the best environment for exceptional patient care. So, if you're a patient coming here, you can expect that nurses have clinical wisdom, expertise, are educated to practice at the top of their license and they work together with the team to provide the exceptional care to patients families and the communities that we have the privilege to serve. We are truly national leaders in nursing.
