Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital Achieves Prestigious Nursing Designation

    Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital, the new name for Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe, has once again achieved the highest honor for nursing excellence through the Magnet recognition program of the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. Only about 10% of hospitals across the country have earned Magnet status.

    “It is evident that the nursing teams at Corewell Health deliver excellent patient care,” said Kelli Sadler, MHA, RN, Corewell Health East chief nursing officer. “Earning the distinct Magnet designation twice certainly demonstrates that our Grosse Pointe team continues to move the needle forward as innovators in nursing practice, while continuing to provide outstanding patient care.”

    Magnet was created to recognize health care organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital first achieved Magnet designation in 2018.

    During a recent visit to the hospital, Magnet surveyors reported being impressed with what they described as extraordinary teamwork. They also praised the hospital’s “family” atmosphere and strong collaboration between team members and leadership.

    “Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital was one of the hardest hit hospitals in Michigan by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brad Lukas, Chief Nursing Officer, Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital. “To earn Magnet re-designation under these difficult circumstances is a significant source of pride and demonstrates the dedication, resilience and excellence of our team. We have only succeeded with the contributions of each member who put their absolute heart and soul into serving their community. Each one of them deserves every bit of this honor. I could not be prouder and offer my heartfelt congratulations.”

    In 2004, Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, became the first hospital in Michigan to achieve this milestone. Only 15 hospitals in Michigan, 13 hospitals internationally and less than 10% of hospitals in the United States have earned Magnet status.

    “Magnet designation indicates nurses are in an environment where their voice is valued and sought after to provide essential input on issues that impact both patient and nursing outcomes,” said Giulia Heiden, RN. “It’s a badge of honor in the nursing profession and makes me proud to be a nurse here.”

    Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital President Timothy C Lyons, M.D., built on Lukas’s standpoint.

    “Our nurses care deeply about their patients’ experience and care,” Dr. Lyons said. “To achieve Magnet designation for the second consecutive time is an incredible honor. It reflects our commitment to empowering our nurses through collaboration, education and professional development to continue to provide the highest quality care for our patients.” In October, the re-designation will be presented to the staff at the 2023 ANCC National Magnet Conference in Chicago, Illinois.
