Providence St. Peter Hospital has joined the ranks of the top four percent of hospitals in the nation by earning the coveted “Magnet®” recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center®. The Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes the top health care organizations in the nation for providing nursing excellence.

Only two other hospitals in Washington State, the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital, have garnered this top honor.

Research shows there are clear benefits to hospitals that are awarded Magnet status and to the communities they serve:

  • Healthcare consumers have more confidence in the overall quality of a hospital if it has achieved the level of excellence established by the Magnet Recognition Program.
  • Magnet designated facilities consistently outperform other facilities in recruiting and retaining nurses resulting in increased stability in patient care and patient satisfaction.
  • Because quality nursing is one of the most important factors in enlisting high caliber physicians and specialists, Magnet status becomes an attractive force that extends to the entire facility.
