In April, BWH submitted evidence of the hospital’s commitment to quality patient care, clinical excellence, interprofessional collaboration and innovation for consideration as a Magnet-designated hospital. While the Magnet Recognition Program’s roots are in nursing, the designation honors the work and culture of an entire institution.

Magnet Recognition Program appraisers are reviewing BWH’s submission. If accepted, BWH will receive dates for a site visit, which would likely occur this fall. Appraisers will observe how the Brigham delivers exceptional patient experiences.
