Here at NYU Winthrop, we have always known that our nurses rank among the nation’s best. Now, it’s official!

NYU Winthrop recently received national recognition for excellence in nursing from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®. The highest recognition that a hospital can earn in the area of nursing excellence, Magnet Recognition Program® designation is considered the gold standard.

“Magnet recognition provides our community with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of patient care and NYU Winthrop is proud to earn this prestigious designation,” said John F. Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital .

“Achieving Magnet recognition reinforces the culture of excellence that is a cornerstone of how NYU Winthrop serves its community. It is tangible evidence of our nurses’ commitment to providing the very best care to our patients, of which we are extremely proud,” said Valerie Terzano, PhD (c), RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer.

“NYU Winthrop is an extremely special place. Our nurses embody the core values of collaboration, compassion, education, integrity, innovation and cultural sensitivity, and they hold excellence in their hands every day,” said Christine Marsiello, MSN, RN-BC, NEA-BC, Director of Professional Nursing Practice and Education, and Magnet Program Director, who helped lead the Hospital on this multi-year journey towards Magnet recognition.

The Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes healthcare organizations whose nursing staff consistently delivers superior patient care with the highest levels of professionalism and innovation. To earn Magnet designation, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff.

NYU Winthrop nurses cheer after receiving the news that they have earned Magnet recognition, signifying the gold standard of nursing care.
