Sarasota Memorial Hospital has received Magnet recognition again, a testament to the health system’s nurses and organization’s continued dedication to top-notch care. SMH has earned the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program Magnet designation continuously since 2003, a four-time achievement attained by less than 1 percent of the nation’s 6,300-plus hospitals. SMH is among just 51 Magnet hospitals to earn the designation four times. Valid for four years, Magnet recognition is the highest national honor for nursing excellence and the gold standard for measuring quality of care and professionalism in nursing practice. To achieve Magnet recognition, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy application and review process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff to demonstrate Magnet elements deemed essential to delivering superior patient care. These include nursing leadership and coordination and collaboration across specialties, as well as processes for measuring and improving the quality and delivery of care.
