We are pleased to share that Main Line Health has been recognized by
numerous highly respected, third party organizations for our
achievements in quality and patient safety.
Joint Commission—The Gold Standard
Line Health hospitals are fully accredited by the Joint
Commission. The Joint Commission is an independent, nonprofit
organization whose accreditation and certification process is
recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an
organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance
standards. The Commission has recognized Main Line Health with
several specific quality awards, including Advanced
Certifications as a Primary Stroke Center and Certified Chest
Pain Center, and for Hip and Knee Replacement, Breast Cancer
Care, Sleep Medicine, COPD, and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Line Health’s Bryn Mawr and Paoli Hospitals and Lankenau Medical
Center have received Magnet® re-designation—the nation’s most
distinguished recognition for nursing excellence as designated
by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
ANCC is the leading nursing credentialing organization in the
United States. Magnet designation is widely accepted as the gold
standard of patient care, and recognizes excellence and
professionalism in nursing. According to the ANCC, Magnet
facilities consistently outperform non-magnet organizations,
spend more time at patients' bedsides, and have shorter lengths
of patient stays.
