As a healthcare organization, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas strives to provide the best care possible for our patients. We focus diligently on clinical outcomes, invest in the latest technological innovations and provide services in a clean and safe environment. However, our quest to be the best does not stop there.

National recognition for nursing

In 2007, Baptist Beaumont Hospital earned Magnet Recognition for excellence in nursing from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC’s) Magnet Recognition Program, one of the highest levels of recognition a hospital can achieve. Only 7 percent of the nation’s eligible hospitals have received magnet recognition. This designation ensures a workplace that values nursing and promotes excellence. Magnet hospitals must satisfy strict criteria designed to measure the strength and quality of their nursing care. This national recognition empowers nurses to deliver excellent patient outcomes, promotes a high level of job satisfaction and guarantees a low staff nurse turnover rate.

Better training, better outcomes

Magnet Recognized American Nurses Credentialing Center

For Baptist Beaumont Hospital, the benefits of ANCC certification are exponential to the organization, to our nursing staff and, most important, to our patients. Certified nurses are more competent, accountable and confident in their practice. Studies show that certified nurses practice in a manner that is most likely to improve patient outcomes. And 3 out of 4 patients are much more likely to select a hospital that employs a high number of certified nurses.

Baptist Beaumont Hospital’s award-winning care is complemented by its certification as an Advanced Primary Stroke Care Center, and our Stroke Program is recognized for exceptional efforts that foster better outcomes for stroke patients.

For more than 60 years, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas has been dedicated to providing quality health services and Sacred Work in a Christian environment. Our Partners in Caring — physicians, nurses and staff — practice a philosophy that inspires an environment of teamwork, respect, encouragement, opportunity and trust. Our efforts continue every day and our mission remains steadfast: to build a healthier Southeast Texas — one patient at a time.
