Taiwan Adventist Hospital received Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center in May. ANCC's Magnet Recognition Program® identifies superior quality in nursing care and is the highest national honor for nursing excellence.
Currently, only 523 U.S. health care organizations out of over 6,300 U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet recognition. To achieve Magnet recognition, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy application process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff. The process includes an electronic application, followed by written documentation demonstrating qualitative and quantitative evidence regarding patient care and outcomes.
If scores from the written documentation fall within a range of excellence, an on-site visit occurs to thoroughly assess the Magnet applicant. After this rigorous on-site review process, the Commission on Magnet Recognition reviews the completed appraisal report and votes to determine whether to grant Magnet recognition to the health care organization.
