Newark, Del., August 2019—Tipton Health congratulates Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Chicago on earning Magnet Recognition® designation for the fourth time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Just 8 percent of hospitals nationwide have received Magnet recognition, and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital joins the ranks of only 50 other organizations across the globe that have achieved recognition four times consecutively.
“Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s nursing staff truly deserves this designation because of their absolute commitment to improving patient satisfaction and outcomes,” said Dan Tipton, president and CEO of Tipton Health. “We were proud to help their team to submit their application documents.”
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.
