What is Magnet?

The University of Tennessee Medical Center is proud to be called Magnet status. The Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. Accolades, like those by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is one of the many things we strive to ensure our patients are receiving outstanding and comprehensive care.

National recognition as a Magnet hospital requires that we not only have a track record of sustained excellence in healthcare, but also that we committed to improving clinical care in the future. We’re pleased about this recognition because its proof of what we have always known: our nurses-along with our entire medical and hospital staff-are exceptional people. And it demonstrates why an academic medical center is important to every person living throughout our region.

There are almost 6,000 hospitals in the U.S. But only 7% of them have earned special recognition. And of those 7%, only one of them is located here in our region: The University of Tennessee Medical Center. Research has shown that patient care outcomes are better at Magnet® hospitals, where there is an environment that empowers nurses, values their contributions and supports nursing leadership.

"We must be clear that Magnet recognition is by no means a prize or an award, but rather a data and process driven measurement of patient outcomes at The University of Tennessee Medical Center. Achieving Magnet status demonstrates to all those we care for the expertise and compassion provided by our talented and dedicated nursing staff and other clinicians. We are honored to achieve this designation." - Janell Cecil, Chief Nursing Officer
