Cook Children's Medical Center nurses recognized for excellence…again!

Magnet DesignationIn 2006, the nursing staff at Cook Children's Medical Center was recognized for providing outstanding patient care, when they were awarded Magnet® designation.

In January of 2011, this amazing staff was once again recognized for excellence when they received re-designation as a Magnet hospital from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Since only 3 percent of hospitals in the nation have achieved Magnet re-designation, we are proud to say our medical center nursing staff is among the best.

The Magnet award is one of the most coveted and prestigious honors a hospital and nursing staff can achieve. The Magnet program recognizes hospitals that provide quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice.

"Not only is this a tremendous award for our nurses, but it reflects on everyone here at Cook Children's," said Paula J. Webb, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, vice president of nursing and chief nursing officer for Cook Children's Medical Center. "This important recognition re-affirms what we've always known; we have extraordinary nurses who work tirelessly to provide outstanding care to the patients and families we serve."

The ANCC said there were three areas in which Cook Children's was exemplary:
