The Houston VA Hospital receives fourth consecutive designation with partnership from Tipton Health

Tipton Health is pleased to congratulate Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas, on earning Magnet Recognition® designation for the fourth time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Just 8% of hospitals nationwide have received Magnet recognition, and DeBakey VA is the first VA in the country to attain Magnet recognition four times.

“Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center’s nursing staff truly deserves this designation for their unwavering commitment to their patients,” said Dan Tipton, president and CEO of Tipton Health. “We were honored to be able to support their nursing staff through the Magnet designation process.”

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and the highest international recognition for quality patient care. To earn Magnet recognition, organizations must provide the ANCC with both qualitative and quantitative evidence of patient care strategies and outcomes. It is a lengthy process that requires a concerted team effort. To help complete this journey and attain similar certifications, more than 150 hospitals and health systems nationwide have partnered with Tipton Health.

Included in Tipton’s array of Magnet consulting services are readiness assessments (Gap Analysis), nursing excellence consulting (closing the gaps and nurse leader mentoring), workshops, Magnet document review, mock site visits, and communications and marketing support.
