A Greeting From Our Nursing Leadership

In August 2018, together, after more than two years of preparation, we achieved Magnet Recognition from American Nurses Credentialing Center. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. With this credential, Saint Barnabas Medical Center joins the global community of Magnet-recognized organizations. Just 477 U.S. health care organizations out of over 6,300 U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet recognition.

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and is a factor when the public judges health care organizations. U.S. News & World Report’s annual showcase of “America’s Best Hospitals” includes Magnet recognition in its ranking criteria for quality of inpatient care.

As we look forward to the future, we will continue our commitment to excellence and inter-professional collaboration, while continuing to foster a caring environment. Our focus has been and will remain on delivering the safest quality care for our patients, their families, and each other. We remain steadfast in our commitment to advancing the profession of nursing through professional development, education, certification, research and innovation.

I thank each and every one of you for all that you do each and every day.

With gratitude and profound pride,

Maggie Lundberg
