Nearly two dozen North Texas hospitals were Magnet Recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center for their dedication to high quality nursing services and patient care.
The recognition is given based on patient outcomes and 86 total indicators, and was given to only 47 hospitals in Texas after a scrutinizing review. Hospitals must maintain high patient satisfaction scores, best practices, cultivate a collaborative approach to patient care, a commitment to continuing education, as well as reduce treatment times for emergency operations.
In North Texas, Baylor Scott & White has eight hospitals on the list, Medical City has five hospitals that received the recognition, Methodist has three, and Texas Health has five. UT Southwestern, Children’s Health, and Cook Children’s also made the list.
“Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality care to this community,” said Megan Gallegos, chief nursing officer at Medical City Lewisville via release. Medical City was one of the North Texas facilities to receive the honor. “I am incredibly proud of our repeated achievement of this credential, a true reflection of the foundation of excellence and values that drive our nurses and hospital colleagues.”
