We Are Magnet

Mary Greeley Medical Center is a Magnet-Recognized hospital.

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing and the highest honor given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

Our patient-centered culture isn’t the result of Magnet recognition, though. Rather, this recognition is the result of our culture – a culture shaped, in large part, by the work and commitment of our nurses.
