Manhasset-based North Shore University Hospital has been recertified as a magnet hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, or ANCC.
Under ANCC’s Magnet Recognition Program, healthcare organizations are recognized for their quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.
“I am proud to stand among the special group of nurses at NSUH being recognized for this honor,” Irene Macyk PhD, RN, associate executive director of patient care services and chief nursing officer at NSUH, said in a writen statement about the recertification.
“Magnet recognizes clinical excellence in nursing as a vital partner in care and signifies sustained clinical outcomes that outperform the national average,” Macyk added.
With the recertification, Macyk said the hospital is demonstrating “this ‘best in breed’ international designation placing it among the ranks of the top 10 percent of hospitals. Being validated by the American Nurses Credentialing Center is a proud moment for NSUH nurses and the entire interdisciplinary team. It validates that the best care is given to our patients and community.”
Organizations that achieve this designation undergo a comprehensive process that requires across-the-board participation from both leadership and staff. The application includes written documentation, an on-site or virtual visit and a review by the Commission on Magnet Recognition.
“We are thrilled at the recertification,” Dr. David Hirschwerk, medical director at NSUH, said in a statement. “Our nurses are outstanding and their sophistication, compassion and dedication provide the foundation to build and grow elite programs in our building that serve our community.”
