Magnet Recognition

Yale New Haven Hospital is among approximately seven percent of all hospitals nationwide - and one of only six in Connecticut - to achieve the prestigious Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This recognition reflects how we empower nursing staff, our culture of safety, the quality of nursing practices, and the best practices nurses discover and share to deliver safe patient care. Most importantly, our Magnet designation demonstrates the hard work and dedication of Yale New Haven nurses at all levels.

As a hospital and a nursing team, we’re extremely proud of our Magnet designation. We continue to advance nursing excellence by examining and revising our current practice to ensure exceptional patient outcomes, fostering the professional development of every nurse and keeping the patient at the center of all care.
