Our Magnet Journey
R. Edward Howell, Vice President and CEO of UVA Medical
on our receiving our first Magnet designation in 2006:
"Magnet Recognition is the culmination of many years of work by our nurses to develop the highest standards of care, to build a culture of shared governance, and to exemplify the role of nurses as leaders. Thanks to each and every one of you who made this achievement possible."
In 2012, we continue on our Magnet journey, committed to the pursuit of excellent patient outcomes and a healthy nursing workplace.
