Latest Designation at High Point Regional Health System is for the Elite
The world's largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization has re-designated High Point Regional Health System as a Magnet facility for the third time, thus joining an elite group of facilities. There are only 29 facilities in the nation and two in the state to earn this honor three times.
"The Magnet program recognizes health care organizations that provide nursing excellence in quality patient care and innovations in professional nursing practice," said Tammi Erving-Mengel, vice president and chief nursing officer at High Point Regional. "Magnet Designation is the gold standard for nursing practice and our patients can feel confident they will receive the best care at our facility."
According to the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC) Magnet designation is widely accepted as the gold standard of patient care. Applicants undergo an extensive evaluation, and members who are awarded Magnet status must continue to maintain rigorous standards as part of their four-year designation. Research shows that Magnet hospitals are more effective at attracting and keeping quality nurses. To reapply for and receive Magnet status for an additional four years is confirmation of the hospital's resolve to deliver the highest level of care in nursing today.
