When joining the team at Scottsdale Healthcare, you will be joining Arizona’s first and only multi-hospital health system with Magnet recognition.Shea, Osborn and Thompson Peak hospitals have all been recognized as ‘gold standard’ for nursing excellence. Scottsdale Healthcare is the first multi-hospital health system in Arizona to achieve elite Magnet recognition, an achievement shared with fewer than 25 other multi-hospital health systems in the United States.
Magnet recognition is considered the ultimate benchmark for consumers to measure the quality of care they can expect to receive in a hospital and the gold standard for nursing excellence and patient care, according to the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a division of the American Nurses Association.
|“Magnet recognition is the most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient care.... It is an incredibly difficult honor to achieve because the standards are set so high with emphasis on outcomes, innovation, technology, evidence-based practice and patient partnerships....Magnet recognition is a tremendous accomplishment for Scottsdale Healthcare, and a true testament to our world-class patient care ”

The American Nurses Credentialing Center's Magnet recognition is awarded to hospitals deemed to be "magnets for nurses" for introducing more training programs and mechanisms for nurses to have a greater say in patient care. It was developed to recognize health care organizations that provide nursing excellence.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our staff members and our organization. Magnet recognition is more than an honor. It tells our patients and community that they can expect nursing excellence, teamwork, quality outcomes and a satisfying healthcare experience when they come to Scottsdale Healthcare.”
