Memorial Is Magnet — Again!

Could you hear us?

Memorial’s Wedeberg Conference Center erupted in cheers this morning as hundreds of employees gathered to hear firsthand that Memorial Medical Center has once again earned designation as a Magnet ® Hospital!

Magnet is the highest national recognition for nursing excellence as determined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The designation means that MMC demonstrates excellence in nursing practice and adheres to national standards for delivering patient care.

MMC is one of fewer than 390 hospitals nationwide to achieve the ANCC’s Magnet Recognition for Excellence in Nursing Services. Only an estimated 6 percent of the nation’s hospitals have achieved Magnet status. Memorial achieved initial Magnet designation in November 2006.

In the video below, watch as senior vice president and chief nursing officer Marsha Prater took the call announcing this exciting news —live, in front of a standing-room-only crowd.

We couldn’t be more proud of our nurses! What do you think of this news?
