Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Earns Nursing Excellence Recognition

| 7/29/2019

St. Petersburg, Fla. – July 29, 2019 – The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) named Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital as a Magnet® designated hospital today. The recognition is considered the highest nursing honor a hospital can receive. There are only 498 Magnet hospitals across the world and fewer than eight percent of U.S. hospitals have received the designation.

“Earning Magnet designation is a reflection of the hard work, dedication, excellence and commitment of our nursing staff and the care they provide to our patients and families,” said Tom Kmetz, interim president of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.

In order to become Magnet designated, a hospital must undergo a rigorous process, including submitting hundreds of pages of documentation related to patient care, intense evaluation and a site visit from ANCC.

“The journey to earn this designation has been a long road, but a tremendous milestone for our hospital,” said Melissa Macogay, M.B.A., B.S.N., R.N., CCRN-K, NE-BC, vice president and chief nursing officer at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. “This recognition is not only for the thousands of nurses and employees in our organization today, but also an honor and a legacy to the many nurses who helped us reach this goal, and for the future nurses that will continue to carry this designation forward.”

Magnet is reviewed every four years, in which hospitals again must submit documentation and undergo evaluation from ANCC in order to maintain its designation.
