Parkview Health – Magnet® recognized 

Parkview Health and each of its hospitals are among the nation’s elite, recognized as Magnet® destinations by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program. This recognition identifies hospitals and health systems that meet and exceed demanding standards for nursing excellence. To achieve Magnet recognition, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy review process that demands widespread participation from care providers and co-workers at each hospital. The process includes an electronic application, written patient care documentation, on-site visits to each hospital and a review by the Commission on Magnet Recognition.
