Doctors Hospital was exceedingly honored by the ANCC’s Designation as a Magnet® Hospital in 2019.
Magnet® designation and subsequent re-designation represent the highest standard of care that remains consistent for our patients. It has provided us with more than an external prestigious distinction; internally it has made our hospital a hub for empowering our nurses to reach their full potential and nursing excellence.
Achieving this performance-driven designation creates a hospital environment that inspires the nurses to attain higher patient satisfaction scores, lower complication rates, shorter lengths of stay for the patient and improved clinical outcomes. It provides opportunities for nurses to practice with greater autonomy, improved engagement, increased opportunities for professional development and education, higher nurse satisfaction scores and lower nurse turnover and vacancy.
