Our Fourth Consecutive Magnet Designation for Nursing Excellence
September 2022 | Cook Children's Medical Center achieved its fourth consecutive Magnet® designation from the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC), making it one of only 10 freestanding children's hospitals in the world to receive this prestigious recognition four times in a row.
The Magnet® Recognition Program is the gold standard in nursing excellence and validation of high quality patient outcomes. Research shows Magnet® hospitals have increased patient satisfaction, decreased length of hospitalizations, and lower mortality rates, as well as above average nurse-satisfaction and retention rates.
"This recognition is another example of the incredible culture of excellence at Cook Children's," said Nancy Cychol, chief of hospital services and affiliate ventures at Cook Children's Medical Center. "Our nurses go above and beyond every day to elevate the experience for our patients, families and staff."
