Torrance, CA--Torrance Memorial Medical Center Achieves Magnet Recognition

Torrance Memorial Medical Center joined the ranks of the top 6 percent of hospitals in the nation by earning the coveted Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The Magnet Recognition Program recognizes top healthcare organizations in the nation for providing nursing excellence.

"We are very proud of our nursing team and all members of the healthcare team for the level of care they provide to our community," said Peggy Berwald, RN, senior vice president of patient care and chief nursing officer. "The Torrance Memorial team is committed to excellence in every aspect of patient care. We are truly a Magnet organization, providing the highest caliber of care with extraordinary compassion to our patients and families every day."

Research has shown that patients benefit from visiting hospitals that have achieved Magnet Recognition Program status. These hospitals report improved clinical outcomes, fewer patient falls, fewer medication errors, lower mortality rates, and higher patient and family satisfaction. Magnet hospitals also tend to have lower nursing turnover and an improved nurse work environment.

The designation is bestowed to select hospitals following an intensive review of documentation, data, and clinical practices, followed by lengthy on-site visits.
