Baptist Hospital of Miami is proud to be a Magnet-designated hospital — the highest international recognition that a healthcare organization can attain for nursing excellence and quality patient care. The high standards for earning Magnet status include a culture that focuses on improving patient outcomes, supporting professional autonomy and leadership and fostering collaborative relationships among the interdisciplinary team.
As of December 2020, only 8.9% out of approximately 5,000 U.S. hospitals were designated Magnet hospitals. Baptist Hospital has achieved Magnet status five times and is on the journey to earn its sixth designation — an achievement that only a handful of hospitals in the nation have realized.
We will be a leader of excellence in nursing, maintaining our Magnet Recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We will continue to be a high-performing organization led by our principles of caring, collaboration, welcoming, attentiveness and innovation. We will sustain an environment conducive to the enhancement of professional practice from novice to expert, transformational leadership, structural empowerment, exemplary professional practice and new knowledge and evidence-based practice. We will continue to be the best practice benchmark for clinical outcomes, patient safety and satisfaction while striving to provide an environment that is a great place to work for our nursing staff. We are committed to providing high-quality patient- and family-centered healthcare and an exceptional experience for those providing and receiving healthcare. Our philosophy of healthcare that cares will continue to lead our stewardship to achieve a healthy community.
