In the news: Children?s Memorial Hospital receives third designation

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, July 1, 2010

Children’s Memorial Hospital of Chicago proudly announced this week that is has received its third designation through the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®. Children’s Memorial— which has been a Magnet hospital since 2001—is the first hospital in Illinois to receive its third designation, and is the first free-standing children’s hospital in the country.

“This becomes even more of a testament to the dedication and talent of our nurses when you think that only 6 percent of hospitals have achieved Magnet designation and less than 1 percent of these hospitals have been able to maintain Magnet designation three or more times,” said Michelle Stephenson, Chief Nurse Executive at Children's Memorial, who leads the hospital’s 1100 nurses. “This third designation signifies how fully imbedded the Magnet principles are in the culture of this institution, and underscores the commitment of our entire staff to continually strive harder each day to meet the healthcare needs of the people we serve.”
