Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital has achieved magnet designation for excellence in nursing services by the American Nurses Credential Center's (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program.

'The Magnet recognition is a tremendous achievement for Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital, but it does not change who we are," stated Nancy Sims, Chief Nursing Officer. "It simply recognizes the excellent work our nurses and patient care givers do each day and reflects the commitment of our entire staff to serve as a team, providing the highest quality care possible for the people of our community."

Only three percent of the nation's 7569 hospitals � including the Mayo Clinic, John Hopkins Hospital and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center � have achieved Magnet status.
