Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is pleased to announce it has achieved Pathway to Excellence® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
The Pathway to Excellence designation identifies the elements of work environments where nurses can flourish. The designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of nurses at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital and identifies it as one of the best places to work in the country.
“This recognition represents a great deal of hard work and a true commitment to nursing excellence,” said Janet Leatherwood, Chief Nursing Officer at Methodist Sugar Land. “Our nurses are at the heart of everything we do and they deserve to be honored for their unrelenting compassion and care for our patients.”
The Pathway to Excellence designation is granted based on the confirmed presence of characteristics known as “The Pathway to Excellence Criteria.” For an organization to earn the Pathway to Excellence distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment — as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be present in the facility’s practices, policies, and culture. Nurses in the organization verify the presence of the criteria in the organization through participation in a completely confidential online survey.
As a Pathway to Excellence® designated organization, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is committed to nurses, to what nurses identify as important to their practice, and to valuing nurses’ contributions in the workplace. This designation confirms to the public that nurses working at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital know their efforts are supported. The honor encourages other nurses to join their colleagues in this desirable and nurturing environment.
