In 2014, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin earned the highly coveted Magnet Recognition Program® status for the third consecutive time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The Magnet designation is granted every four years to only those organizations that demonstrate sustained superiority in nursing care.
What makes this third Magnet designation especially exciting is that it validates the excellence of not one, but three Children’s sites – the hospitals in Milwaukee and Neenah, and the Surgicenter.
Children’s now joins the ranks of an elite group of three-time Magnet-recognized hospitals. Less than 1 percent of all hospitals with Magnet status have earned the designation for three consecutive four-year periods. Only about 7 percent of the hospitals in the nation have achieved Magnet recognition, with just 3 percent successfully earning re-designation.
Magnet status is the highest level of formal recognition for nursing excellence and is considered the gold standard for hospitals. Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee was one of the first pediatric hospitals to achieve this status when it first achieved Magnet designation in 2004.
Public notice: From Dec. 9-12, Children's will host a Magnet Recognition Program® site visit. Members of the community are invited to meet the Magnet appraisers- to share perspectives on how Children's is integrated in the community, how the healthcare needs of the community are addressed, and how the community recognizes the value of nursing to the community.
