In April, BWH submitted evidence of the hospital’s commitment to quality patient care, clinical excellence, interprofessional collaboration and innovation for consideration as a Magnet-designated hospital. While the Magnet Recognition Program’s roots are in nursing, the designation honors the work and culture of an entire institution.

“It really is a remarkable body of evidence illustrating the great work we do every day at the Brigham,” said Lisa Morrissey, DNP, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, interim chief nursing officer and senior vice president of Patient Care Services, at Town Meeting on May 25. “Many of you contributed to our Magnet submission, and I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you as we continue the path to becoming a Magnet hospital.”

Magnet Recognition Program appraisers are reviewing BWH’s submission. If accepted, BWH will receive dates for a site visit, which would likely occur this fall. Appraisers will observe how the Brigham delivers exceptional patient experiences.
