Our founding principles of compassion, honesty, transparency, and above all else, patient-centered care, guide us as an institution. Being recognized by local, regional, and national organizations for these attributes brings a credibility and prestige to our hospital that you can count on. We have been honored for our clinical expertise, for example with the 2015 Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence in both percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and cardiac catheterization (CC). Or, the full Chest Pain Center with PCI Accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC). We also have a growing number of certifications and accreditations. Here, you can rest easy knowing you will receive award-winning care.
Our patient-centered focus and quality care is sustained through the compassion and dedication displayed by our tireless team of nurses and other staff members, and the physicians on our medical staff. We are proud to announce that the hospital has been recognized three-times by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for the Magnet® Recognition Program.
Just 452 U.S. healthcare organizations out of more than 6,300 U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet recognition and approximately 34 percent of the Magnet recognized organizations that have attempted three or more designations have been successful.
