On December 20, Houston Methodist West Hospital received Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence. Houston Methodist West Hospital is one of a select group of hospitals nationally to be awarded this distinction. After Houston Methodist West demonstrated it met or exceeded standards in the areas of nursing administration, education, clinical practice, research and quality, the American Nurses Credentialing Center announced the award. This is the highest level of recognition a hospital can receive from the ANCC for excellence in nursing services.
There are only 482 Magnet hospitals in the world (including 43 in Texas, of which, 4 are other Houston Methodist facilities), and only 8 percent of hospitals in the United States have achieved Magnet designation.
“This designation is a tribute to each and every one of our team members who have dedicated themselves to our patients and their families,” said Vicki Brownewell, vice president and chief nursing officer at Houston Methodist West.
