UCLA’s Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital earns prestigious Magnet® designation for nursing excellence
The Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA has attained Magnet® recognition, the nation’s highest honor for excellence in nursing.
The hospital is one of the first psychiatric facilities to receive the prestigious designation, which is awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only about 7 percent of all U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet® recognition.
The Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, a 74-bed acute psychiatric hospital, is a key part of UCLA Health and the major psychiatry teaching facility of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
"Magnet® designation is a hard-won honor that requires a total team effort to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients," said Karen Grimley, the Chief Nurse Executive of UCLA Health. "It reflects the tremendous dedication of the hospital nursing staff to both their profession and the patients they serve."
