Carolinas Medical Center’s nursing services receive ‘magnet’ designation

Carolinas Medical Center, the region’s largest hospital, recently received a four-year designation as a “magnet” hospital in recognition of its professional nursing services.

The recognition was granted by the American Nurses Credentialing after an application process that began in 2011.

Magnet hospitals are essentially magnets for nurses. Research has shown that magnet hospitals are associated with lower mortality rates, higher levels of patient and nurse satisfaction, lower levels of emotional exhaustion among nurses and fewer medical complications related to nursing care.

Three other hospitals in Carolinas HealthCare System have the designation: Roper St. Francis Healthcare in Charleston, AnMed Health in Anderson, S.C., and Cone Health in Greensboro.

Twenty-two hospitals in North Carolina, have received the magnet designation.
