Excela Health is proud to hold System Magnet® Designation. This is a reflection of our nursing professionalism, strong collaboration and teamwork, and superiority in patient care. This honor was bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program® and distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. Just eight percent of U.S. healthcare organizations out of more than 6,300 U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet® recognition. In Pennsylvania, only 35 healthcare organizations hold this designation.
To achieve Magnet® recognition, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff. Excela Health was identified as exemplary in three areas, including: community advocacy, partnering with patients and innovation.
Considered the gold standard, Magnet® recognition is the highest recognition for nursing excellence and is a key factor when those seeking care evaluate healthcare organizations.
Research shows that Magnet-recognized organizations consistently demonstrate:
· 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.
· Lower rates of falls.
The Magnet Recognition® Program — administered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the largest and most prominent nurses credentialing organization in the world — identifies health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care and professionalism in nursing practice. The Magnet Recognition® Program is the highest national honor for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark for measuring quality of care.
