American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) awarded the Magnet recognition to HUS (Helsinki-Uusimaa Hospital District) Comprehensive Cancer Center, said HUS in a press release on Friday.

The recognition proves that the quality of nursing, patient safety, and nurses’ job satisfaction in Comprehensive Cancer Center are measured to be excellent.

Comprehensive Cancer Center is currently the second hospital in Europe and the first in the Nordic Countries to achieve Magnet recognition.

The Magnet Hospital recognizes nursing excellence. It is a research-based quality system that benefits the patients, the nursing staff, and the entire organization. The recognition is awarded for four years at a time.

The Magnet in the name represents the force that attracts patients to the hospital due to high-quality nursing and nurses due to good working environment.

“The Magnet recognition proves that the quality of nursing, patient satisfaction, and nurses’ job satisfaction are measured to be excellent in comparison with national and international results. This recognition is a wonderful prize for years of hard work,” said Vuokko Kolhonen, Chief Nursing Officer at Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“It is not a coincidence that Comprehensive Cancer Center’s nurse attraction and retention has been on a high level for years, even despite the exceptional times we’ve had in recent years. I thank our entire nursing staff for their remarkable work for the best of our patients that has now been recognized to be world-class,” said Johanna Mattson, Director of Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“The Magnet recognition is a major achievement for HUS. Comprehensive Cancer Center is the first department at HUS to receive the recognition. Long-term development of nursing in Comprehensive Cancer Center is a fine example to all the other departments that aim to achieve the Magnet recognition,” said Marita Ritmala, HUS Magnet Program Director.
