  As a teaching hospital and research center, we're deeply committed to the enhancement of care for our patients-as well as the professional growth of our staff. As a testament to this commitment, we're proud to be recognized with Magnet Hospital status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.  In fact, we were the first hospital to receive this designation.  We're also consistently named one of the nation's best hospitals, as reported by U.S. News and World Report.
