The Beacon Award for Excellence recognizes unit caregivers who successfully improve patient outcomes and align practices with AACN’s six Healthy Work Environment Standards. Units that achieve this three-year, three-level award with gold, silver or bronze designations meet national criteria consistent with Magnet Recognition, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the National Quality Healthcare Award.

“We know our ICU caregivers are exceptional but being nationally recognized for their consistent and systematic approach to evidence-based care to optimize patient outcomes is quite an honor,” said Karen Lambert, President Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. “Our dedicated nursing staff join other members of the exceptional community of nurses who set the standard for optimal patient care.”
