Beacon Award for Excellence

The Medical Intensive Care Unit and the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center were two of only 15 units in Pennsylvania who were awarded the Beacon Award for Excellence in 2013. The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, which gives the award, judges critical-care units in several specific areas for Beacon recognition: leadership structures and systems; appropriate staffing and staff engagement; communication; knowledge management and best practices; evidence-based practices and processes; and patient outcomes.
