Royal Oak hospital receives national nursing designation
ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak has earned its fourth consecutive nursing designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet recognition program.
The program was created in 1994 and recognizes health care organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.
Beaumont Hospital officials say only about 8 percent of hospitals in the United States achieve Magnet status. The re-designation will be presented in October to Beaumont staff at a conference in Denver, Colorado.
Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak first earned Magnet recognition in 2004. Beaumont Hospital in Troy earned Magnet recognition in 2009, while Beaumont Hospital in Grosse Pointe received it in March.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center is a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association.
