Yale New Haven Hospital is among approximately 8 percent of all hospitals nationwide - and one of only six hospitals in Connecticut - to achieve Magnet® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The designation recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional practice. YNHH earned Magnet® designation for the first time in 2011, and was re-designated in 2016.
