OSUCCC – James Again Achieves Prestigious Magnet® Status

After countless hours of work and dedication by faculty and staff, the OSUCCC – James has once again achieved Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.

Donna Havens, PhD, RN, FAAN, chair of the Commission for Magnet, announced that, as a result of a Magnet® re-designation document that the hospital submitted to the ANCC last August and the findings from a January site visit, the Magnet Committee unanimously voted to credential the OSUCCC – James as a Magnet® organization for four more years. The hospital initially achieved Magnet® status in 2013.
