Nursing is the pulse of patient care — especially at Stormont Vail Health. Our nurses are committed to providing exceptional care, consistently going above and beyond to treat, comfort, and help their patients. Our nurses understand that “Nurse” is not just a job or title, but a calling.


Magnet® Recognition

Stormont Vail has been a Magnet® recognized hospital since 2009. As part of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, Stormont Vail must pass a rigorous and lengthy process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff.

Being Magnet recognized is the highest honor a health care organization can receive for professional nursing practice. This credential has been shown to provide specific benefits to hospitals and their communities, such as:

Higher job satisfaction among nurses

Lower nurse reports of intentions to leave a position

Nursing Excellence Awards

The nurses at Stormont Vail Health are the backbone of our organization and we couldn't appreciate them more.

One way we recognize our nurses each year is by asking team members to nominate their peers that have made significant contributions to the nursing profession in patient care, the community, and at Stormont Vail.

Hundreds of nurses are nominated each year. While all of our nurses deserve recognition, these winners are pillars in representing, promoting, and demonstrating the five tenants of Stormont Vail.
