It is a tremendous honor for Stanford Health Care (SHC) to be among 8% of all registered hospitals that achieve the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition. There are 509 Magnet hospitals worldwide, with 38 in California. SHC initially received Magnet Recognition for Nursing Excellence in 2007 and was granted Magnet re-designation in April of 2012, October of 2016, and Feberuary of 2021.
Magnet recognition is a tremendous honor and reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to our community. To earn Magnet recognition once, as we did in 2007, was a great accomplishment and an incredible source of pride for our nurses. Our achievement of Magnet designation for an additional four years underscores the foundation of excellence and values that drives our entire staff to strive harder each day to meet the health care needs of the people we serve.
