Magnet Designation

Houston Methodist Hospital is ANCC Magnet® Recognized

Houston Methodist Hospital is an honoree of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, which recognizes superior quality in nursing care as evidenced by performance outcomes. ANCC conducts thorough evaluations of hospitals seeking both initial recognition and re-designation, judging proficiency and leadership in the following five key areas that are considered global issues in nursing and healthcare:

  1. Visionary leadership transforming the organization to meet changing needs
  2. Empowered staff properly prepared to face all challenges
  3. Competent, dedicated and empowered nurses
  4. Continued innovation within staff knowledge, clinical practice and systemic improvements
  5. Outcomes measurement systems in place throughout the entire organization

Magnet recognition requires documented evidence of how Magnet concepts, performance and quality are sustained and improved every four-years. Houston Methodist Hospital was first Magnet-recognized in 2002, and continues to be recognized for our dedication to quality patient care. Magnet-recognized organizations consistently demonstrate better patient care, including the following outcomes:

  • Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help and receipt of discharge information
  • Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue
  • Lower rates of falls
