Magnet Status

On May 3, 2016, Billings Clinic was granted their third designation as a Magnet Organization. The journey to Magnet designation began for Billings Clinic in 2001.  Nursing leadership was intrigued with the areas of focus that ANCC had chosen as valued components demonstrating nursing excellence.

After attending the Magnet Conference in October of 2001, the first Magnet Program Director was instrumental in leading the initial Magnet Team at Billings Clinic (then Deaconess Billings Clinic) in March 2002.


Those initial members took Billings Clinic through the first efforts to obtain designation. In 2003 application was made and documents were submitted. These efforts fell short as Billings Clinic only achieved excellence in 12 of the 14 Forces of Magnetism.  Final documents were submitted in June 2006 and in October Billings Clinic received its first Magnet designation.

Billings Clinic made application for redesignation in 2010. A successful site visit was conducted by ANCC and in October 2011 Billings Clinic was awarded re-designation of our Magnet status. With the most recent re-designation, Billings Clinic is currently designated a Magnet organization until April 2020.

What does the Magnet status mean to patients?

Nurses play an important role in a patients' overall hospital experience. They are the primary source of care and support during some of the most vulnerable times in a person’s life. At a Magnet hospital, our nurses are experienced and attentive, and spend more time at the bedsides providing compassionate care.

During the 2015 re-designation process Billings Clinic was awarded two exemplary status practices.   Nurse satisfaction outperformed the national vendor mean in 9 of 11 sub-scales.  The use of evidence-based practice findings to implement a  practice new to the organization was also noted through the development of Triple Chronotherapy for adolescent patients in the Psychiatric inpatient unit.
