Achieving Magnet designation is one of the highest achievements a health care organization can achieve. Cincinnati Children's accomplished a third Magnet® re-designation in June 2018. Our nurses and staff strive for high quality care, best practices that make a difference to the patients and families we serve and sit at the table to influence key decision makers. Research findings from Magnet® recognized organizations demonstrate that nurses have increased job satisfaction, increased retention, increased recruitment abilities, and decreased burnout; among patients: increased patient and family satisfaction, and improved patient outcomes. Earning Magnet® status benefits our care environment, our patients and our Cincinnati Children’s workforce.

“What matters most about this recognition is that the kids win again,” says Barb Tofani, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President of Patient Services and Chief Nursing Officer at Cincinnati Children’s. “Outstanding care provided by highly skilled and caring staff -- that's what we're all about and what Magnet® recognizes.”
