Newark, Del., April, 2019—Tipton Health is pleased to congratulate Geisinger Wyoming Valley and Geisinger South Wilkes Barre in Pennsylvania on earning Magnet Recognition® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Geisinger Wyoming Valley is the first Northeastern Pennsylvania hospital to achieve Magnet status and joins the 8% of hospitals that have received this designation.

“Our team was thrilled to support Geisinger Wyoming Valley’s talented nurses on their journey to Magnet recognition,” said Dan Tipton, president and CEO of Tipton Health. “Their nursing team is wholeheartedly committed to providing the very best care to their patients each day.”

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and the highest international recognition for quality patient care. To earn Magnet recognition, organizations must provide the ANCC with both qualitative and quantitative evidence of patient care strategies and outcomes. It is a lengthy process that requires a concerted team effort. To help complete this journey and attain similar certifications, more than 150 hospitals and health systems nationwide have partnered with Tipton Health.

Included in Tipton’s array of Magnet consulting services are readiness assessments (Gap Analysis), nursing excellence consulting (closing the gaps and nurse leader mentoring), workshops, Magnet document review, mock site visits, and communications and marketing support.
