ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® 

Magnet Recognition is the most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can earn for nursing practice and quality patient care. Research shows that Magnet hospitals and healthcare organizations have better outcomes, patient satisfaction and nurse retention.

The Magnet Model provides a framework for nursing practice, research, and measurement of outcomes. Through this framework, American Nurses Credentialing Center evaluates applicants across several components and dimensions to gauge an organization’s nursing excellence.

Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies are proud to be elite members of the global community of Magnet-recognized organizations.
