Magnet Recognition

Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services Cori Loescher, MM, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, celebrates with the Magnet team

Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital has received Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The hospital was also recognized with three exemplars for Transformation Leadership, Exemplary Professional Practice and New Knowledge.

“I want to express my congratulations and gratitude for the individual and collective efforts that went into our Magnet journey over that past several years,” says Cori Loescher, MM, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services.

BWFH is now among approximately eight percent of hospitals in the country that have achieved Magnet recognition and the 500th organization to reach this milestone!  

The Magnet Recognition Program is viewed around the world as the gold standard of nursing excellence and high-quality patient care delivered by an entire organization that leads to the highest levels of safety, quality and patient satisfaction. While Magnet designation is considered the gold standard for excellence in nursing practice and healthcare delivery, the honor is bestowed upon the entire hospital, not just the Nursing Department. 

BWFH will be holding a hospital-wide celebration in a few weeks to recognize this extraordinary achievement. More details about this celebration will be forthcoming.

“I just want to say thank you all to our entire staff for your incredible commitment to helping us achieve Magnet recognition and for all you do for our patients, their families and each other every day!” says Loescher.
