In 2001, our hospital was the nation's first freestanding pediatric hospital, and the first hospital in Illinois, to earn the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Magnet Recognition® for Nursing Excellence and Quality Patient Care. In 2015 Lurie Children's achieved Magnet® recognition for a fourth time; less than 1% of all hospitals have been recognized four times.
