Methodist Mansfield First Local-Area Hospital to Achieve Prestigious Magnet® Designation for Nursing Excellence

Jul 24, 2017 04:51AM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger

Methodist Mansfield Medical Center achieved Magnet® designation for excellence in nursing from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The ANCC recognition program is the highest honor an organization can receive for professional nursing practice.  The designation is viewed around the nation as the ultimate credential for high quality nursing. In addition to being recognized for innovations in nursing processes, Magnet® organizations are also recognized for outstanding patient care, an indication of an organization’s dedication to attaining high levels of safety, quality, and patient satisfaction.
 
Nora Frasier, RN, FACHE, NEA-BC Vice President of Nursing and Chief Nursing Officer with Magnet Director Laura Sweatt.

Methodist Mansfield is the first Mansfield hospital to achieve Magnet status and is among 40 designated facilities in Texas.  Only eight percent of hospitals in the United States have earned this designation.
 
“Our Magnet® designation demonstrates this staff’s consistent dedication to provide outstanding service and excellent quality clinical care to our patients,” says Nora Frasier, RN, FACHE, NEA-BC, chief nursing officer and vice president of nursing, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “Recognition from the ANCC is the most prestigious honor of my career. The recognition belongs to everyone at Methodist Mansfield and to Methodist Health System who has supported and inspired all of us to provide the best care possible for every patient, every day.”
 
The process for achieving Magnet® designation is lengthy and rigorous, requiring extensive staff participation. Following submission of the application and detailed qualitative and quantitative documentation on patient care and outcomes, a thorough on-site visit occurs. After reviewing the appraisal report, the Commission on Magnet® Recognition votes to decide whether Magnet® recognition will be granted.
 
“Magnet hospitals provide patients and their families with the gold standard of nursing excellence,” says John Phillips, FACHE, president, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “We are so honored that Methodist Mansfield has a culture of excellence, allowing us to achieve this prestigious designation.”
