Magnet Recognition for Clinical Excellence


At Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, we are dedicated to providing the best care, and understand how important it is to provide our patients and their families with a positive experience, no matter the circumstance.

Yet again, CHLA has been recognized for just this. For the third consecutive year, Children’s Hospital of LA has been awarded the Magnet Recognition for Clinical Excellence by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

"Receiving the Magnet Recognition for the third time in Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ history affirms our commitment to providing the best in patient care. My sincerest gratitude and admiration goes out to our dedicated nursing staff and nursing leadership for the exemplary care they provide and the high standards they follow every day." – Paul S. Viviano, CHLA President and CEO

The Magnet Recognition Program was developed by the ANCC. It is the world's largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization that recognizes healthcare organizations who demonstrate the highest quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional practice.

“Our nursing staff is the backbone of patient care at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” Says Nancy Lee, RN, MSN, NEA-BC, senior vice president and chief clinical officer. “It is a difficult task to achieve the Magnet designation status and even more difficult to maintain this designation.”

The Magnet Recognition Program commission reported that CHLA exceeded many of the programs high standards and stood out as an example to hospitals across the U.S. Only a select group of 468 healthcare organizations out of approximately 6,000 in the U.S. have achieved Magnet status. CHLA is one of 33 California hospitals to hold the magnet designation.


At CHLA we understand that in order to provide the best experience for all of our patients, it is crucial to ensure that we keep the thousands of medical records that we deal with every day secure.

Our information technology department works hard to create a reliable computer network to keep these important files safe, and we’ve been recognized for our dedication to patient privacy.

We’re proud to have been named as one of the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum’s Most Wired® 2017.

"This recognition is a testament to the unceasing work of our Information Services team, a confirmation of the technological roadmap we’ve laid out for the future of our health system, and an affirmation to our patients and families that their medical records are secure and complete across our entire continuum of care." – Paul S. Viviano, CHLA President and CEO

AHA determines winners through a survey which measures how hospitals are using technology to support patient safety and overall care. This year, 698 total participants were surveyed, with CHLA being named as one of 21 children's hospitals to receive the designation.

"Safeguarding each child's health, safety and privacy is at the core of Children's Hospital Los Angeles' mission to offer transformative, compassionate care,” Steve Garske, PhD, CHLA’s chief information officer said.

U.S. News & World Report – No. 1 on West Coast 2017

We are proud to be recognized on the U.S. News and World Report Honor Roll for Best Children’s Hospitals for the ninth year in a row—an honor we have been able to claim since our inception in 2008! This year, we are the only pediatric hospital on the West Coast to be named on the list, finishing sixth out of the 113 hospitals surveyed nationwide.

In order to decide award recipients, U.S. News assesses pediatric hospitals across the nation, based on a number of aspects including health outcomes, national stature, signature programs and level of expertise. From there, the hospitals with the 10 highest scores are placed on the Honor Roll.

"This distinguished recognition reflects the collaborative efforts of our world-class physicians, nurses, researchers, technicians and clinical staff," – CHLA President and Chief Executive Officer, Paul S. Viviano

"We continually strive to provide the highest-quality care and best outcomes for the patients treated at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and we are honored that U.S. News & World Report has once again acknowledged the work that we do to achieve our mission of creating hope and building healthier futures."

NRC Health – Excellence Award 2017

This year, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was also acknowledged by NRC Health as a recipient of its 2017 Excellence Award, which distinguishes top-performing health care institutions and hospitals that have the highest ratings in overall satisfaction by patients and their families. In order to be recognized, organizations must have exhibited performance at or above a 90 percent positive score. CHLA has won this award 3 years in a row!

"Each year, our partners inspire us with their commitment to service. The individuals at these organizations show a genuine understanding for their patients, which is revealed in their extraordinary, compassionate care." – Helen Hrdy, Senior VP of Client Service at NRC Health
