Magnet Nursing at Geisinger Medical Center

Exceptional Patient Care

At Geisinger, we put our patients first with our nursing practice, patient care and quality outcomes exceeding the highest standards. And knowing that our entire care team is committed to excellence in all aspects of patient care makes Geisinger Medical Center the best choice when choosing a healthcare provider.

A Rewarding Journey

On Friday, Oct. 10, 2008, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) designated Geisinger Medical Center (GMC) as a Magnet hospital. GMC is now an elite member of a group of only 18 Pennsylvania hospitals and fewer than 6% of hospitals in the United States who have achieved Magnet status.

The designation came seven months after submitting a 2,537-page document containing evidence of our commitment to the highest quality patient care and professional nursing performance. Magnet is proof of our commitment to excellence.
