NICU Receives GOLD-level AACN Beacon Award for Excellence

Please congratulate the Nursing Leadership and Nursing Education Team with Emily Spellman leading the charge on winning a GOLD-level AACN Beacon Award for Excellence for our NICU from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) recognizing individual hospital units that improve patient outcomes.

The Beacon Award for Excellence lauds North American hospital units that employ evidence-based practices to improve patient and family outcomes and we are one of only nine NICU’s with a Gold Designation.

This is a major honor with fewer than 300 out of more than 6,000 intensive care units both adult and pediatric and both medical and surgical in the United States who have received this award.

This is a very significant national recognition of the quality of care provided by the nurses to our patients in the NICU and is highly deserved.
