Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital Earns Magnet Recognition

Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital has achieved the Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), representing the highest recognition for professional nursing practice that an organization can receive.

“I am incredibly proud of this team,” Kerry Major says, MSN, NE-BC, Chief Nursing Officer of Cleveland Clinic’s Florida region. “They live and breathe quality patient care. This designation is a reflection of their hard work and I am honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with these amazing caregivers who are dedicated to our patients, each other and to their profession.”

The ANCC, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association, is globally recognized as the largest nurse credentialing organization. The organization describes the Magnet recognition program as acknowledging healthcare institutions’ commitment to quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovative professional nursing practices.

“Achieving Magnet status for the first time is a tremendous milestone for a hospital,” Meredith A. Foxx says, MSN, MBA, NEA-BC, APRN, executive chief nursing officer at Cleveland Clinic’s Stanley Shalom Zielony Institute for Nursing Excellence. “This recognition reflects the nursing caregivers’ dedication to professional practice, ongoing education, and achieving excellence through certification. I am so proud of the nursing caregivers and leadership team at Weston Hospital for their commitment to providing the highest quality of care and reaching this remarkable accomplishment.”

To attain Magnet recognition, organizations undergo a comprehensive review and systematic assessment of their nursing practices by the ANCC. The process involves a thorough review, documentation, and a site visit by ANCC professionals who assess the hospital against various quantitative and qualitative standards that signify excellence in nursing services, clinical outcomes, and patient care delivery.

The ANCC team cited several areas in which the Weston Hospital excelled, including: 

  • Outperforming national benchmarks for in-patient engagement
  • Outperforming national benchmarks for in-patient care coordination
  • Outperforming national benchmarks for in-patient hospital-acquired pressure injury
  • Outperforming national benchmarks for in-patient falls with injury
  • Outperforming benchmarks for surgical errors in the ambulatory setting

“Achieving Magnet recognition is a well-deserved honor,” F. Scott Ross says, vice president and chief medical officer of Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital. “It reinforces our belief that our nursing team is exceptional. I am proud of the work they do and proud to congratulate them on this accomplishment.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
