Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center earned a second designation as a Magnet hospital in September 2012. The Medical Center is part of an elite group of Magnet organizations worldwide. Less than 7 percent of U.S. health care organizations have earned this recognition.

In issuing the redesignation, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) singled out Penn State Hershey for exemplary practices in three areas: advancement of nursing research, use of technology to incorporate input from nurses in the design of patient care areas and involving nurses in the development of protocols for protecting human research subjects. Magnet re-designation underscores the high quality of care that our nurses and staff provide to patients and their families each and every day. This achievement demonstrates the dedication all of our caregivers have to excellence and to producing the best possible patient, organizational, and community outcomes.

Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Nurses achieve excellence in nursing each day caring for patients and families.
