Beaumont has earned several awards in honor of its excellent nursing staff. From national designations, to private awards given through generous donations from families touched by the nursing care they, or a loved one, received, Beaumont consistently recognizes its nurses for their work and achievements.
The ANCC, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association, developed the Magnet Recognition Program in 1994 to recognize health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care. The program is based on quality indicators and standards of nursing practice as defined in the American Nurses Association's Scope and Standards for Nurse Administrators.
More than 20 years of research about Magnet recognition has shown that hospitals having Magnet status have lower patient mortality rates, fewer medical complications, improved patient and employee safety, shorter hospital stays and higher patient and employee satisfaction. Less than 1.5 percent of hospitals in the country have achieved this status and only 33 percent of the hospitals that apply for the credentialing process are awarded an evaluation visit.
The Magnet designation, earned by Beaumont hospitals in Royal Oak, Troy and Grosse Pointe, recognized the hospitals and nursing staffs for their quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations to the nursing practice. Beaumont, Royal Oak was the first hospital in Michigan to receive this honor, the highest and most prestigious designation available for the nursing profession. Our other 5 hospitals are on the Magnet journey.
