Anna Cerra, DNP, RN, chief nursing officer (center), celebrates with staff upon hearing that Greenwich Hospital received the prestigious Magnet designation for a second time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the nation’s highest honor of nursing excellence.

 

Greenwich Hospital received the prestigious Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for the second time, placing it among only eight percent of the more than 5,600 hospitals nationwide – and one of only seven in Connecticut – to achieve this distinguished honor.

The ANCC awarded a second Magnet designation with six exemplars, commending the hospital for its professional nursing practice, career development and safety. Magnet designation is the highest honor of nursing excellence that any hospital can achieve. Greenwich Hospital’s Magnet designation is the culmination of several years of preparation and continued commitment to evidence based nursing practices and patient care through quality improvements as well as interdisciplinary collaboration.

“To achieve this honor during an international pandemic underscores Greenwich Hospital’s ongoing commitment to provide the best possible patient experience in any situation,” said Diane Kelly, DNP, RN, the hospital’s president. “Magnet designation provides the ultimate benchmark for patients and their families to measure the quality of care they can expect at a hospital. The hard work and dedication of our nurses ultimately elevates the work environment of all staff and physicians.”
