Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital Again Awarded Pathway to Excellence® Designation
HUMBLE, TEXAS (October04,
Northeast Hospital once again joins a premier group of organizations that
have received the Pathway to Excellence® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing
Center (ANCC). This is the hospital’s third consecutive Pathway to
Excellence designation since it was first recognized in 2012.
The Pathway designation is a global
credential that highlights Memorial Hermann Northeast’s commitment to creating
a healthy work environment where nurses feel empowered and valued. It is a testament to professional
satisfaction among nurses and identifies best places to work for nurses. Research also indicates that Pathway nurses
are engaged, resulting in reduced turnover, improved safety, and better patient
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized
by the ANCC as a Pathway to Excellence organization,” said Nikki Roux, JD, MBA,
RN, CEN, FACHE, NEA-BC and Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Memorial
Hermann Northeast. “But more
importantly, we are honored to be recognized by our very own nurses. Their feedback - and ultimately this
designation - validates a culture that encourages, supports and invests in one
of most valuable assets – our nurses.”
For an organization to earn the
designation, it must successfully undergo a vigorous review process,
documenting quality initiatives that create a positive work environment as
defined by nurses and supported by research. Nurses in the organization verify
the presence of the criteria through participation in an online survey.
As a Pathway organization, Memorial
Hermann Northeast and its sister facilities including Memorial Hermann Katy
Hospital and TIRR Memorial Hermann, lead the effort to enhance quality of care,
patient and nursing safety, and the future of healthcare delivery.
