At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we are committed to nursing excellence. Our nurses are empowered to provide high-quality, patient-centered care. Lehigh Valley hospitals are the only Magnet®-designated hospitals in the region. Across our health network, we take pride in supporting our nurses in their professional growth and advancement.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program® is the most prestigious designation a hospital can earn. Magnet recognition demonstrates that Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) supports professional nurses to be their best. Our nurses are leaders who are empowered to grow in their profession and help shape the future of patient care while providing compassionate, evidenced-based care.

LVHN locations in the Lehigh Valley (Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Cedar CrestLVH–MuhlenbergLVH–17th StreetLVHN–Tilghmanhome care and hospice services) are pursuing Magnet designation for the fifth time. As LVHN prepares for the Magnet appraiser team virtual site visit in July 2020, ANCC has asked that we provide the attached information to our community. Please review the ways you may submit comments as part of the Magnet redesignation evaluation process.
