We are excited to share that Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin (ASMCA) has earned Magnet Recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). ASMCA is the only adult hospital in Austin to receive this prestigious designation and the second hospital in the Ascension Seton network. Dell Children’s received Magnet Recognition most recently in 2018. Less than 9% of the 6,000 healthcare organizations in the United States have received this designation.

Here’s what Donna Beecroft, Chief Nursing Officer at ASMCA, said about this award:

“This is a celebration of each and every one of our nurses. The team at ASMCA has long prided ourselves on the level of care we provide but earning Magnet publicly recognizes the excellent patient care delivered here by some of the best nurses in the world.”

Watch the moment we received the news:

During this unprecedented year our clinical teams have never wavered in providing compassionate care to our community. Likewise, we are grateful to our community who has shown support through calls, emails, donations, and well-wishes.

Thank you!
