Magnetude at the University of MD Medical Center
We have Magnet Designation! The University of Maryland Medical Center held a big celebration with the official word from the American Nurses Credentialing Center that it had earned Magnet Designation. Now UMMC is among only 5 percent of hospitals nationwide that have this designation, which is recognition of excellence in nursing.
Magnet means a lot for attracting and retaining the best nurses. And patients who know about Magnet want to come to a Magnet hospital because it means they will get excellent nursing care.
