The Gold Standard of Nursing Excellence
Ochsner Medical Center, located at 1514 Jefferson Highway, achieved the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition® for Excellence in Nursing Services in 2003 and was re-designated in 2008 and 2019. We are among less than 1 percent of hospitals in the nation to have achieved Magnet® designation four times.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes health care organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. This credential is the highest national honor for professional nursing practice. Earning Magnet recognition is a great accomplishment and an incredible source of pride for our nurses. We are proud of our continued honor in the Magnet Recognition Program®, which is proof of our dedication to quality healthcare and our commitment to providing a work environment where nurses are empowered and equipped to provide expert care to every patient in our communities.
