Magnet Recognition Program®

Magnet Designation is the “gold standard” for nursing’s contribution to quality patient outcomes and serves as one of the ultimate benchmarks in determining the level of quality a consumer can expect to receive in healthcare organizations. Magnet Designation represents a culture of excellence that embodies participatory leadership, evidence-based standards, knowledgeable and competent nurses who practice autonomously and the existence of strong collaboration between interprofessional colleagues.

Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies achieved two Magnet designations and are working toward their third designation.
