American Nurses Credential Center
Magnet status is an award given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), an affiliate of the American Nurses Association, to hospitals that satisfy a set of criteria designed to measure the strength and quality of their nursing. A Magnet hospital is stated to be one where nursing delivers excellent patient outcomes, where nurses have a high level of job satisfaction, and where there is a low staff nurse turnover rate and appropriate grievance resolution. Magnet status is also said to indicate nursing involvement in data collection and decision-making in patient care delivery.
The ANCC awarded El Camino Hospital Magnet designation after a vigorous, multi-faceted evaluation that included an extensive on-site visit.

El Camino Hospital joins the elite ranks of less than 200 primary stroke centers in the United States to earn the designation.
