UK HealthCare earns nursing’s highest honor

We’re thrilled to announce that UK HealthCare has achieved Magnet status – the highest institutional honor awarded for nursing excellence – from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program.

Achieving Magnet status involves a rigorous and lengthy review, but what it means is simple: our nurses are the best at what they do.

Magnet status is the gold standard for nursing excellence. Out of nearly 6,000 health care organizations in the United States, fewer than 7 percent have achieved Magnet designation.

The status represents a solid commitment to continuing education and nursing specialty certification, a cultural transformation of the work environment involving a shared governance model and laser focus on patient safety.

Congratulations to our nursing team — you’re the best!
