On February 14, 2012, NWH received a call from the American Nurses Credentialing Center informing us that we have received Magnet Recognition! This prestigious award follows extensive review of our written application and completion of a site survey, which was conducted last December. The Chair of the Magnet Commission said it was her ‘high honor and privilege’ to award us with Magnet Recognition. She referenced our ‘wonderful application’, ‘extraordinary exemplars’, ‘patient centered care model’ and ‘’how our nurses work with interdisciplinary colleagues’. She also said they were ‘impressed with our high patient satisfaction scores’ and thanked us for serving our patients and community. NWH is now one of 19 hospitals in New York State to be Magnet Recognized and is the only hospital in the United States designated as both a Planetree Hospital with Distinction and a Magnet Recognized Hospital!
To earn Cancer Gold Standard accreditation, a company must establish programs to reduce cancer risk by discouraging tobacco use; encouraging physical activity; promoting healthy nutrition; detecting cancer at its earliest stages when outcomes may be more favorable; and providing access to quality care, including participation in cancer clinical trials. Northern Westchester Hospital is the only hospital in Westchester County to receive Cancer Gold Standard accreditation.
As the first hospital in Westchester to receive this award, we have developed and maintained wellness programs to fight cancer in the workplace. This is an award for the hard work of the NWH Wellness Committee and their constant endeavor to make NWH a healthier workplace.
