What does Magnet Nursing mean to you? It means that you are getting the very best care from some of the most highly trained nurses in the nation. NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital was the first hospital in the region to hold this distinction and the only hospital to be designated twice. In fact, less than 7 percent of hospitals nationwide have the Magnet designation. That’s because The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Award goes to only those hospitals that go through a rigorous credentialing process and meet some of the highest standards in training and nursing.
The Magnet nurses are valued members of the team, helping to shape patient care. That’s why NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital attracts and retains exceptional nurses. That’s good news for you because it means that you and your family receive the best care. Patients agree. In patient satisfaction ratings, our nurses consistently score above the 90th percentile when it comes to friendliness, courtesy and competency.
At NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital our nurses practice Patientology – a philosophy that combines the latest technology with award-winning care and the heartfelt conviction that a patient is always a person first.
