Magnet RecognizedBayhealth earned the prestigious Magnet® designation in recognition of our nursing excellence in 2015. With this achievement, Bayhealth joins the Magnet community — a select group of 455 out of nearly 6,000 health care organizations.

Magnet recognition is granted by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the credentialing body of the American Nurses Association, to honor health care organizations for nursing professionalism, teamwork, quality patient care, and innovations in nursing practice. We are extremely proud to be among an elite group of about seven percent of the nation’s hospitals who are recognized by the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®.

We began our efforts toward Magnet designation in 2007, and over the course of that time transformed our nursing services, clinical outcomes and the way we deliver patient care. Being a Magnet-designated hospital is evidence of our relentless pursuit of nursing excellence.
