Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital is the latest in the Partners HealthCare network to receive the prestigious Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care. Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital was also recognized with three exemplars for Transformation Leadership, Exemplary Professional Practice, and New Knowledge.

The Magnet Recognition Program is viewed worldwide as the gold standard of nursing excellence, leading to the highest levels of safety, quality, and patient satisfaction. The designation is awarded following a rigorous review of care factors known to contribute to nursing excellence, including quality of nursing leadership, collaboration across specialties, and processes in place to measure and improve the delivery of care. Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital joins just eight percent of the country’s hospitals awarded the recognition, including Massachusetts General Hospital—the first Magnet hospital in Massachusetts—and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, designated in 2018 (see story in our 2018 Annual Report, page 10, here).

“I want to express my congratulations and gratitude for the individual and collective efforts that went into our Magnet journey over the past several years,” says Cori Loescher, MM, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.
