HackensackUMC Milestone

Magnet Re-designation

HackensackUMC was the first hospital in New Jersey and the second in the country to receive Magnet® recognition for Nursing Excellence, the highest honor that can be bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

In January 2014, HackensackUMC received its fifth consecutive Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center—making the medical center just one of two hospitals in the entire nation to achieve this feat. After a rigorous three-day site visit by the Magnet Appraisal Team in December, they unanimously re-designated HackensackUMC as a Magnet hospital for its 20th consecutive year.
