Alegent Health Mercy Hospital Magnet Status Renewed

Council Bluffs, IA

Alegent Health Mercy Hospital earned Magnet Hospital status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for the second time. The Magnet designation recognizes excellence and professionalism in nursing. Mercy Hospital first earned Magnet status in 2005. Only six percent of U.S. hospitals achieve Magnet recognition, and just three percent are re-designated by the ANCC. For more information, contact Jodi Hoatson, jodi.hoatson@alegent.org.
