UCLA Health - Santa Monica Medical Center (SMCULA) initially achieved Magnet® designation in June 2016. Over the next four years, nurses at SMUCLA continued to promote exceptional patient care. The various initiatives implemented in pursuit of achieving clinical excellence were highlighted in the SMUCLA re-designation document submitted on May 29, 2020.
