Magnet Recognition Program®

All Premier Health hospitals have earned Magnet® Recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. Magnet-recognized, organizations empower nurses to reach their true potential.  When a healthcare organization earns Magnet® status, it demonstrates to the world that it’s an organization that recognizes the invaluable potential of nurses to lead healthcare change.

Nationally recognized as the highest standard for excellence in patient care, only 8.9 percent of U.S. hospitals hold the esteemed four-year designation and only 15 U.S. healthcare systems currently hold this honor as a system. The benefits of achieving Magnet® Recognition are: 

  • Attract and Retain Top Talent
  • Improve Patient Care, Safety and Satisfaction
  • Foster a Collaborative Culture
  • Advances Nursing Standards and Practice
  • Grows Business and Financial Success

As part of Premier Health’s first-ever system Magnet designation in January 2019, Miami Valley Hospital achieved its fourth Magnet® designation since 2004.  Premier Health’s Atrium Medical Center and Upper Valley Medical Center are among 39 other hospitals in Ohio with Magnet® status and only 576 Magnet-designated facilities in the world. Premier Health hospitals are the only Dayton-area adult hospitals recognized as Magnet hospitals.

Magnet designation from the ANCC lets our communities know that our hospitals provide the very best in nursing care and uphold the tradition of professional nursing practice.
