Magnet Recognition for Quality Patient Care, Excellence in Nursing and Innovation in Professional Nursing

Memorial Hermann Health System is proud to have six facilities recognized with one of the highest national honors for nursing excellence a hospital can receive – Magnet® recognition is a reflection of nursing professionalism, teamwork and superiority in patient care. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® (ANCC) distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence.

With this credential, our six Memorial Hermann hospitals join the global community of Magnet-recognized organizations. Only a small and select group of U.S. healthcare organizations have achieved Magnet recognition.

Research demonstrates that Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to healthcare organizations and their communities, such as:

  • Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help and receipt of discharge information
  • Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue rates
  • Higher job satisfaction among nurses
  • Lower nurse reports of intentions to leave their positions

The Magnet Model provides a framework for nursing practice, research, and measurement of outcomes. Through this framework, ANCC evaluates applicants across a number of components and dimensions to gauge an organization’s nursing excellence.

The foundation of this model comprises various elements deemed essential to delivering superior patient care. These include the quality of nursing leadership and coordination and collaboration across specialties, as well as processes for measuring and improving the quality and delivery of care.

There are seven Magnet hospitals within the Memorial Hermann Health System:
