System Awards and Achievements

Magnet Logo

Premier Health Earns System Magnet® Recognition

Premier Health has earned Magnet® recognition as a system from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We are one of only 20 health care systems in the U.S. — and only the second in Ohio — to receive professional nursing’s highest honor. Research shows that Magnet-designated hospitals provide a safer environment with better outcomes for patients, such as fewer complications and injuries, lower mortality rates, and shorter stays.

As part of Premier Health’s first-ever system Magnet designation, Miami Valley Hospital has achieved its fourth Magnet designation since 2004. With its latest designation, the hospital joins an elite group of only 58 U.S. health care organizations – fewer than 1 percent of hospitals in the nation – to have earned four Magnet designations. Atrium Medical Center and Upper Valley Medical Center join 30 other hospitals in Ohio with Magnet status and only 481 Magnet-designated facilities in the world.
