What Is Magnet?

Saint Joseph Hospital (SJH) began its Magnet Journey years ago when we decided to raise the bar and be the very best in the nation! SJH sought continuous improvement in preventing hospital-acquired conditions and associate injuries while increasing associate and patient satisfaction. It took all of us to impact our report card and we can be proud of the results! Magnet is an opportunity to tell our story!
