Ten years ago, University Hospitals Portage Medical Center embarked on a journey that very few hospitals undertake. We committed ourselves to achieving Magnet status, the gold standard of nursing excellence. We achieved certification in 2006 and, after four years of continuous improvement, we were re-designated in 2011. UH Portage Medical Center is once again applying for re-designation.
