Transformational Leadership

At Stormont Vail, nurses lead at all levels. All members of our nursing team are knowledgeable leaders whose voices are heard, input is valued and practice is supported. From the bedside level on up, our staff nurses are capable of making decisions.

Transformational leadership is a core philosophy of a Magnet organization. Through the strength of vision, our transformational leaders are able to inspire others to change expectations, perceptions and motivations to work toward common goals. Transformational leadership leads to positive changes in those who follow – and helps ensure the outcomes that are needed for nursing advancement within our organization.

Quality Outcomes

Patient safety and quality of care are the priorities of professional nurses at Stormont Vail. We have formal processes in place that enable all of our nurses to stay current with advancements in patient care, education and state-of-the-art technologies. This keeps us on the path of continuous improvement and positive health care outcomes.

We track quality measures and compare them to national and state data. Quality “indicators” are considered the best measures for determining whether the patient is receiving quality care. Being a Magnet organization, we continually monitor patient care and outcomes to ensure we are providing a high standard of care.
