MAGNET® Recognition for Nursing Excellence
Main Line Health has received System Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the nation's highest award for recognizing excellence in nursing care, which has been awarded to only seven percent of hospitals and 22 health systems in the nation. Riddle Hospital, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital and the Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice division have received initial designation, and Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital and Paoli Hospital have been designated for the third time. We are the only health system in the nation to bring on two initially designating entities and the HomeCare & Hospice division, along with three re-designating hospitals. With this designation, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital becomes the fourth acute rehabilitation facility in the country, and the only one on the East Coast, to receive Magnet recognition.
