Meritus Medical Center is an ANCC Magnet® credentialed hospital!

It’s official! Meritus Medical Center has joined the top eight percent of hospitals in the country as a Magnet® organization and the only Magnet® hospital in western Maryland and the tristate region!

Magnet® designation is the highest credential awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center or ANCC for excellence in nursing care. Organizations achieving this credential demonstrate a culture of excellence and professional collaboration leading to a healthy work environment and positive patient outcomes. This process was both rigorous and thorough for all involved — from the bedside nursing staff to senior leadership. Magnet® Recognition is an impressive and important distinction for our organization and staff as well as the community we serve.

The conference call from the ANCC’s Commission on Magnet® Recognition chair was an exciting and emotional time! To watch the celebration, click here or visit the Meritus Health Facebook page.

Congratulations to our Meritus Medical Center Amazing Nurses® and every member of our team who have led us on this journey to Magnet® Recognition!
