Pathway to ExcellenceTM
Texas Health Specialty Hospital has been designated as a Pathway to Excellence HospitalTM. This designation is nationally recognized and is awarded by The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association (ANA). Texas Health Specialty Hospital becomes one of the first hospitals to receive the designation under its new name and affiliation with ANCC. It was formerly known as Nurse FriendlyTM and was awarded by the Texas Nurse's Association (TNA).
This prestigious designation is based upon the confirmed presence in the hospital of 12 standards cited by research and by nurses as exemplifying the kind of nursing practice environment that has a positive impact on patient care, as well as on nurse job satisfaction and retention. An important step in the process is a confidential survey completed by the nursing staff confirming the presence of these elements.
The designation tells all nurses that a facility:
- Recognizes the essential elements of an ideal nursing practice environment
- Is committed to nurses and to what nurses identify as important to their retention
- Values the contributions of nurses in its overall pursuit of safe, quality patient care
