Medical City Denton Recognized for Nursing Excellence

Magnet® designation honors superior nursing performance


In recognition of its continued outstanding commitment to nursing excellence, teamwork and superior patient care, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has unanimously voted to  confer Magnet® designation to Medical City Denton.

Magnet recognition distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous nursing standards, achieve quality benchmarks and patient satisfaction scores. Only 448 of more than 5,627 U.S. healthcare organizations have achieved Magnet status. Medical City Denton first achieved this prestigious four-year designation in 2012.

The ANCC specifically recognized Medical City Denton for its outstanding stroke care and patient education, for reducing sepsis and for its nurse satisfaction.

Research shows that Magnet recognized hospitals benefit patients and communities by providing:

    • Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication
    • Exceptional quality and patient outcomes
    • High nurse retention rates and advanced education
    • Assurance that the hospital holds top credentials for excellence in nursing

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence.
