Medical City North Hills November 24, 2015

Medical City North Hills announced today it has achieved Pathway to Excellence® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

The Pathway to Excellence designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of nurses at Medical City North Hills and identifies it as one of the best places to work. It is the third re-designation for the hospital.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the outcomes, achievements and outstanding nursing care that is delivered every day,” said Tracey Smithson, chief nursing officer at Medical City North Hills.

To qualify, organizations meet 12 practice standards essential to an ideal nursing practice environment. Applicants conduct a review process to fully document the integration of those standards in the organization's practices, policies and culture. Pathway designation can only be achieved if an organization's nurses validate the data and other evidence submitted, via an independent, confidential survey.
