MAGNET RECOGNITION PROGRAM

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 national recognition for excellent nursing practice in hospitals.

Every four years, hospitals must reapply for Magnet designation. In 2008 and 2013, Barnes-Jewish Hospital received redesignation as a Magnet hospital. 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.

Magnet recognition is held by only five percent of U.S. hospitals. Thirty percent of hospitals reapplying for Magnet are not approved.

A REFLECTION OF CALIBER

“This redesignation reflects the caliber and commitment of Barnes-Jewish Hospital nurses. They have owned and implemented the forces of Magnetism in their professional role as nurses,” says Coreen Vlodarchyk, RN, vice president of patient care services and chief nurse executive.

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.
