BOSTON – Boston Medical Center (BMC) has been awarded Magnet® Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the highest national credential for nursing excellence, quality patient care and innovation in professional nursing practice.

With this recognition, BMC joins a select Magnet® community, with fewer than 10 percent of hospitals in the United States achieving Magnet® status. The ANCC thoroughly evaluated BMC nursing practice in their review of submitted documents that included exemplars and outcome data, as well as interviews of clinical nurses, nurse leaders, the BMC executive team and members of the Board of Trustees.

“BMC’s Magnet®  designation was made possible by years of hard work by our Nursing Department and many other teams across the hospital,” said Kate Walsh, President and CEO of BMC. “This is a reflection of the high quality, compassionate care that our nursing team provides across the hospital and in all of our clinics, and our nurses should feel incredibly proud, as I do.”

“Magnet® recognition is an honor that reaffirms the professionalism and dedication of our entire staff, and reinforces the core values that guide how we do our jobs every day,” said Nancy Gaden, BMC’s Chief Nursing Officer. “As a Magnet® -recognized organization, we live by our mission – exceptional care without exception.”
