Medical Center receives nursing recognition
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center's University Hospital and Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital have once again received Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only 2 percent of hospitals nationwide are redesignated Magnet(r) facilities. To achieve redesignation, organizations must continue to meet a set of 14 Magnet criteria and demonstrate further development of nursing standards.
