Houston, Texas — HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest achieved Magnet recognition in December 2023 as a result of its nursing professionalism, teamwork and superior patient care.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest is recognized as a committed organization where nursing leadership effectively aligns their nursing strategic goals to foster excellence in patient outcomes with this credential.

“Our team is dedicated to providing the community with excellent healthcare which includes exceptional, empowered and supported nurses. Magnet recognition further validates our commitment to deliver the highest quality of patient care. We are extremely proud of our dedicated nurses and their pledge to serving our North Houston community and beyond,” states Jeffrey Mills, chief nursing officer, HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest.

Research demonstrates that Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to healthcare organizations and their communities, such as:

  • Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication and receipt of discharge information
  • Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue rates
