CentraState Medical Center, Freehold Township, attained Magnet recognition again in April 2020. This distinction places CentraState in a group of less than 2% of hospitals in the nation to have earned Magnet recognition four consecutive times.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program distinguishes healthcare organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. This credential is the highest national honor for professional nursing practice.
“I’m very proud of our nursing staff for their commitment to quality patient care, which is reflected in our fourth Magnet designation,” said Linda Geisler, RN, vice president of patient services and chief nursing officer. “This is important to our patients as well because studies show that Magnet hospitals report better patient outcomes, higher patient satisfaction and greater retention of nurses.”
In response to calls for personal protective equipment for healthcare employees and other front-line responders battling the COVID-19 pandemic, Jake Lebowitz, general manager of Raceway KIA of Freehold, recently announced he has donated 1,000 KN 95 masks to the CentraState Heath Care System, Freehold Township.
“This is just part of our continued commitment to the communities we serve,” Lebowitz said. “We extend our deepest appreciation to the many healthcare providers and volunteers at CentraState Healthcare System who are doing so much to help affected patients and communities.”
