On December 17, 2021, UPMC Harrisburg achieved Magnet® recognition for the fourth time, an accomplishment realized by less than 2% of hospitals nationwide. Starting at the top and moving clockwise are Jeremy Clarke, Michele Goss, Christie Muza, Jennifer Gutshall and Kathleen Hogan Flinn.
Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) represents the highest standard of excellence in patient care for hospitals. It is considered the gold standard in nursing. Less than 9% of hospitals have achieved Magnet® accreditation, and a smaller percentage have realized this prestigious designation more than once.
The Magnet Recognition Program® provides a roadmap to nursing excellence, which benefits the entire organization. To nurses, Magnet® recognition means education and development through every career stage, which leads to greater autonomy at the bedside. To patients, it means the very best care, delivered by nurses who are supported to be the very best that they can be.
The following UPMC hospitals have received Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC):
