The President's Letter from Michael J. Duncan

Dear Friends,

Mike DuncanIt is with tremendous pride I share with you that Chester County Hospital has achieved Magnet® recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This recognition is the culmination of a comprehensive evaluation process with the ANCC as part of its Magnet Recognition Program.® It has been both rigorous and thorough for all involved - from the bedside nurse clinicians to the department heads, executive team, and the Board of Trustees.

Magnet recognition is an impressive and important distinction for our hospital, staff and the communities we serve because it identifies us as a health care organization that demonstrates excellence in nursing services. It is the highest national credential for nursing excellence, serving as the gold standard for nursing practice. With this achievement, Chester County Hospital joins the Magnet community - a select group of about 400 health care organizations out of nearly 6,000 health care organizations nationwide and one of just 23 hospitals in Pennsylvania so recognized.

We have always believed that we employ the highest quality and most professional nurses. Being recognized by the ANCC reinforces that confidence.

Warm regards,
Michael J. Duncan
President and CEO
Chester County Hospital
