Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital has again achieved the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet®
designation. The Magnet designation — a voluntary credentialing program for hospitals — serves as the gold standard in nursing excellence and recognizes our dedication to providing the highest quality patient care.
Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health is part of a prestigious group of 552 Magnet-designated health-care organizations worldwide. The announcement in mid-March puts LGH in elite company as one of just 23 hospitals to have achieved the Magnet designation five times.
All six of Penn Medicine’s acute-care facilities — which also includes The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Hospital, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Princeton Medical Center, and Chester County Hospital — have achieved Magnet status.
