LewisGale Hospital Montgomery has received Magnet designation, the highest national honor for professional nursing practice, from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for the fourth time.

Receiving Magnet recognition is a tremendous achievement, as only a small, select group of healthcare organizations are recognized each year. Magnet recognition is awarded to organizations and nursing teams that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence, leading to the highest level of treatment for patients. Very few hospitals in the country have four or more Magnet recognitions.

“This recognition is a great honor and reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to our community,” said Lauren Dudley, chief executive officer. “Earning Magnet recognition is a great accomplishment and incredible source of pride for our nurses. Our repeated achievement of this credential is the cornerstone of a foundation of excellent patient-focused, quality care.”

Less than 10% of hospitals in the United States are Magnet recognized, and less than 1% of those have been designated four or more times. Research demonstrates that Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to healthcare organizations and their communities. These include higher patient satisfaction, lower risk of 30-day mortality, higher job satisfaction, and lower nurse turnover.
