Genesis Medical Center, Davenport Magnet Designation

Our Nurses Have A Certain Magnetism

MagnetLogoFor the last 15 years Genesis Medical Center in Davenport Iowa has been designated as a Magnet hospital. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), an arm of the American Nurses Association, has three times named GMC Davenport a member of the prestigious Magnet Recognition Program for excellence in nursing.

The Magnet designation, the gold standard for patient care, is awarded to hospitals after they meet rigorous nationally and internationally recognized standards for nursing care and performance. Of the roughly 6,000 hospitals in the United States, only 6.3 percent have achieved Magnet recognition. Only 3 percent achieve Magnet designation twice. Less than 1 percent are awarded Magnet recognition three consecutive times, like GMC Davenport.

The Magnet redesignation acknowledges GMC Davenport's continued success in delivering high-caliber, patient-centered care as well as innovation in professional nursing. This provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of care that they can expect from Genesis nurses.

GMC Davenport employs nearly 1,000 full-time, part-time and per diem nurses.

Magnet hospitals attract higher quality nurses, physicians, and specialists. Patients and their families can have more confidence in the quality of care Magnet facilities like Genesis Medical Center has to offer.

Genesis is built on the foundation of quality patient care and nursing excellence. Magnet Recognition confirms what we already know; Genesis Health System is the best place to go for quality patient care and exceptional Nursing practice.
