Akron Children's re-designated as a Magnet hospital

11-10-2016 (Akron, Mahoning Valley, Ohio )

Akron Children’s Hospital has been re-designated as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program.®

The Magnet Recognition Program recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.

Akron Children is one of only 34 pediatric Magnet hospitals nationwide and one of 28  Magnet hospitals in Ohio. The 446 Magnet designated organizations represent less than 7 percent of all U.S. healthcare organizations.

“Magnet designation is like winning the gold medal in the Olympics,” says Lisa Aurilio, vice president of patient services/chief nursing officer at Akron Children’s Hospital. “It demonstrates the excellence of our nurses in providing outstanding patient care and would not be possible without the contributions of our entire clinical and support staff. It’s a team effort and a testament to the high-quality, family-centered care that defines our mission.”

Aurilio notes the Magnet re-designation reflects the excellence of patient care provided at all Akron Children’s Hospital locations, including its Beeghly campus in Boardman.
