St. Luke’s Treasure Valley (the Boise and Meridian hospitals) has received the Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for the fourth time, making it one of only 30 hospitals in the nation to obtain this status and the only facilities in southern Idaho with the designation.
Magnet® recognition is prestigious. It signifies that an organization is exceptionally dedicated to the growth and development of its nurses, exceptionally dedicated to quality and patient safety, and exceptionally dedicated to the communities it serves. Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, Magnet® is a leading source of successful nursing practices and strategies worldwide.
Officials from the American Nurses Credentialing Center said St. Luke’s outperformed others in nursing satisfaction, nurse-led programs and significant support of nurses by physicians.
At St. Luke’s, nurses are leading efforts to improve patient care through evidenced-based medicine, partnerships and communications.
