The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) re-designated Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in 2013 as a Magnet Hospital for excellence in nursing services.
The Magnet Recognition Program®, an impressive and important designation, brings national recognition to our hospital with a nursing staff that is among the best in the nation. Only the top five percent of the 5,000 hospitals in the United States have received Magnet Status; Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is one of the smallest hospitals in California to receive this distinction and the only Magnet Hospital in the Greater San Fernando Valley.
"We may be a community-based hospital, but our nursing staff is among the best in the nation, and I'm honored that the ANCC has recognized this," said Ann Dechairo-Marino, Chief Nursing Officer, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. "With this recognition, our patients can expect to be cared for by the finest nurses and they will know they will achieve the best quality outcomes."
The ANCC's Magnet Recognition Program provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of care that they can expect to receive. The Magnet Recognition Program recognizes health care organizations that demonstrate excellence in nursing services and adherence to national standards for the organization and delivery of nursing services.
Our Magnet Journey Continues
Nursing excellence continues to be a major focus at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. And nurses are a key part of our hospital’s decision-making as we manage healthcare reform and its focus on quality, affordability and access.
Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, historically, has a strong culture that provides the ability to adapt to change and move forward with innovative ideas. Shrinking financial resources, regionalization of operations within Providence's Southern California facilities and more regulatory requirements have increased our commitment to patient quality and care.
With the support from our leadership team, we continue to live up to our honor as a Magnet Hospital and our focus on excellent patient care provided by our nurses and physicians.
