Valley Flies to Fifth Magnet Designation!

magnetIn 2022, Valley celebrated our fifth Magnet designation for nursing excellence! The designation follows months of rigorous preparation among Valley’s Nursing Ambassadors and all nursing staff, which culminated in a successful, three-day site visit by the Magnet surveyors.

Receiving Magnet designation – the highest recognition a healthcare organization can receive for nursing – is a testament to Valley’s continued dedication to high-quality nursing practice.

Congratulations to our nurses for earning this prestigious designation, and thank you for all you do to elevate your nursing practice every day!

Flying to 5!

The theme for our re-designation efforts – “Flying to 5” – was chosen by Valley’s Magnet Ambassadors. It signifies that, despite already achieving high levels of nursing performance, we still aim to fly even higher, striving for unmatched clinical excellence and always advancing nursing practice at Valley.

Check out our “Flying to 5” music video!

Becoming “Magnetized”

The road to Magnet re-designation would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of Valley’s Magnet Ambassadors. This team helped our units and departments prepare for the Magnet site visit in several ways, including:

  • Distributing Magnet handbooks to nurses
  • Conducting mock surveys with staff
  • Sharing educational materials
  • Holding Magnet Fairs at The Valley Hospital and the Luckow Pavilion

Valley’s Magnet Fair gave nurses a chance to play games, win prizes, and test their Magnet knowledge. Watch a slideshow of photos from the event!
