In April, Sinai Hospital of Baltimore received the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s highest honor for nursing excellence, making it the first and only community/teaching hospital in Maryland to carry the elite "Magnet" designation.
After an intense application and review process, Sinai Hospital joined a distinguished list of Magnet hospitals nationwide, including Duke University Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina; Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota; and the Cleveland Clinic. The Magnet Recognition Program® designation is held by only 287 hospitals of the more than 6,000 eligible health care organizations in the country.
The Magnet Recognition Program®, developed in 1990 by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, recognizes excellence in quality patient care, nursing leadership and innovations in professional nursing practice. Additionally, Magnet hospitals demonstrate adherence to standards for improving the quality of patient care, leadership of the nurse executive in supporting professional development of every nurse, and incorporating cultural and ethnic diversity of patients and their families.
Sinai continuously recruits highly skilled and compassionate nurses to join our team. To listen to our nurses describe what it means to work in a Magnet hospital and be part of the Sinai family, check out this recently produced video of our Magnet announcement celebration.
