Tipton Health is pleased to congratulate Lehigh Valley Health Network, St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital and Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital on earning Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

“Our team was thrilled to support each of these hospital’s talented nurses on their journey to Magnet designation,” said Dan Tipton, president and CEO of Tipton Health. “Receiving this accreditation in the midst of their heroic efforts against COVID-19 is a testament to their tireless dedication to their patients, as well as their commitment to excellence.”

This is the fifth consecutive designation for Allentown, PA-based Lehigh Valley Health Network, which includes 10 hospital campuses. This is the first designation for both St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, located in Newburgh, NY, and Houston-based Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital.

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. The process is lengthy and requires a concerted team effort.

More than 190 hospitals and health systems nationwide have partnered with Tipton Health to help them complete their Magnet journeys and attain similar certifications.

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.
