Magnet Hospital Care

Magnet Recognition 2012 logoANCC Magnet Recognition® is the highest and most prestigious international distinction a healthcare organization or hospital can receive for nursing excellence and outstanding patient care. It is considered the "gold standard." Lowell General has been granted this designation.

Magnet® hospitals are international models for nursing care. Other hospitals look to Magnet® organizations for ways to improve patient results, reduce hospital stays, and attract and keep the most qualified nursing staff. Evidence indicates that hospitals that have achieved Magnet® status have improved nurse to patient ratios and patient satisfaction is higher than in non-magnet hospitals.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) oversees the Magnet Recognition Program® and works to ensure that it maintains rigorous standards based on expert patient care, ongoing training and continuing education, teamwork, community involvement and attention to overall patient needs.The program recognizes excellence in:

  • Understanding and respecting the cultural and ethnic diversity of patients, their significant others and healthcare providers
  • Adherence to national standards for improving the quality of patient care services
  • Leadership of the nurse administrator in supporting professional practice and continued competence of nurses
  • The management, philosophy and practices of nursing services
