Middlesex Health is proud to announce that Middlesex Hospital has earned its sixth consecutive nursing Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.  

A Magnet® designation means that Middlesex continues to meet the rigorous standards of clinical nursing excellence set by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Less than 20 health organizations worldwide have earned this designation six times. 

Middlesex earned its first Magnet® designation in 2001 and was the first health system in Connecticut and the first community hospital in the country to do so. 

The Magnet® designation demonstrates the health system’s ongoing commitment to interprofessional collaboration and excellence in patient care. It is a prestigious designation earned every four years, and Middlesex must go through a lengthy vetting process before it is deemed a Magnet® organization. 

Across the country, nurses and their healthcare systems have faced monumental challenges, including financial stressors, workforce shortages, and continued pandemic demands. 

Despite these challenges, Middlesex Health’s nurses demonstrate unwavering dedication and consistently achieve extraordinary outcomes, exceeding national benchmarks for patient satisfaction, quality care, and nurse satisfaction. At Middlesex Health, we have built a culture of excellence!
