Medical center, children's hospital achieve magnet status

University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, and University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, Fairview, have joined an elite group of health-care organizations nationwide selected as Magnet facilities for their high-quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice.

Just 4 percent of the country’s hospitals have received the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services—one of the highest levels of recognition a hospital can achieve.

Research shows that achieving Magnet status helps hospitals build consumer confidence in their services, outperform other facilities in recruiting and retaining nurses, and attract high-caliber physicians and specialists. The designation is valid for four years.
