In September 2010, Aultman was granted Magnet recognition again for Excellence in Nursing Services. Given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, Magnet is the highest recognition and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of care that they can expect to receive. Research shows that Magnet hospitals are more effective at attracting and keeping quality nurses; and patients have lower mortality rates and shorter lengths of stay than at non-Magnet facilities.
Aultman first achieved recognition in 2006 from the high-level Magnet Recognition Program and is still the only organization in Stark County named.
Our nurses play an active role in leadership by partnering with physicians and the entire interdisciplinary team to attain excellence in patient care. Aultman is committed to recruiting and retaining the very best nurses. This is accomplished by creating and sustaining a work environment that supports, values, rewards, and recognizes professional nurses.
Nurses at Aultman have professional development opportunities to advance their careers. A culture of lifelong learning is supported through Aultman’s commitment to ongoing education and specialty certification. Nurses at every level shape best practices through an integrated shared decision-making structure that brings the voice of the direct care providers to the decision making table.
