CentraState Medical Center is one of only 2 percent of hospitals nationwide to achieve Magnet® designation for nursing excellence four times as part of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program.® Only 8 percent of the approximate 5,800 hospitals in the U.S. hold Magnet designation, so a four-time designation is an elite accomplishment.

Research shows that Magnet-recognized organizations consistently outperform organizations that have not achieved Magnet status. They have better patient care outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. Magnet-designated organizations are known for quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice.
