Magnet ® Designation for Excellence in Nursing The American Nurses Credentialing Center has rewarded RIM Magnet designation for excellence in nursing. Magnet status is one of the highest distinctions a hospital can receive. It is bestowed only to hospitals that exceed professional standards in nursing practice, leadership, education and research, and can document these accomplishments. RIM is the only rehabilitation hospital in Michigan and one of only three rehab hospitals in the U.S. to receive the Magnet designation. Research shows Magnet status benefits both the hospital and its community because it increases consumer confidence, recruitment and retention, and helps to maintain positive patient outcomes.
