Making Progress on the Journey

For the past several months, a number of individuals and committees have been working diligently to prepare for the next major phase of BWH’s journey towards Magnet® designation: submission of our formal application. We expect this important step to take place within a month or so.

Part of the preparation has entailed identifying the sources of evidence that will support our case that BWH meets or exceeds the 49 standards set forth by the Magnet® Recognition Program as measures of quality patient care, clinical excellence, research and innovation.

One of the great rewards of reviewing these projects and initiatives, put forth as potential sources of evidence, has been the realization that truly great, inspiring, life-changing work is taking place throughout our institution. It has led more than one person to comment: “It really makes one proud to be a part of the BWH community.”
