Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the Magnet program recognizes health care organizations that provide the best in nursing care based on quality indicators and nursing practice standards. Only an elite group of less than 600 hospitals/facilities worldwide have earned Magnet status, a testament to the level of care Beaumont’s nurses and clinical care teams provide.
Achieving Magnet recognition from the ANCC is more than earning a badge of honor. Studies in peer-reviewed journals have affirmed that Magnet hospitals are able to recruit and retain first-rate nurses, and achieve superior performance and clinical outcomes.
Beaumont, Royal Oak became the State of Michigan’s first Magnet-designated hospital in 2004. Since then, our hospitals in Farmington Hills, Grosse Pointe, Taylor, Troy and Trenton have earned Magnet designation; there are only 15 Magnet hospitals in our entire state.
