A team of nurses and nurse leaders representing Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford and
Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, were recognized and celebrated at the recent American Nurses
Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference in Dallas, TX for Hallmark Health's
Magnet® designation.

In April Hallmark Health achieved Magnet® recognition as a reflection of its nursing professionalism, teamwork and
excellence in patient care. Only eight hospitals in the state, and less than 7
percent of hospitals in the United States, have Magnet recognition. Hallmark
Health System is the only system in New England to receive this recognition.

"The entire Hallmark Health community is so proud of our nurses for achieving Magnet
status," said Michael V. Sack, president and CEO. "To be celebrated by such a
large number of their peers from the best nursing programs in the country is a
testament to their hard work and clinical excellence. They prove everyday how
they work together and keep our patients as the center of their attention. Our
patients and community have known this for many years."

The conference welcomed more than 7,000 nurses and nurse executives from top
hospitals across the country. It is the official annual conference of
the prestigious Magnet Recognition Program®, serving as both a
celebration of accomplishment for newly designated Magnet®
organizations and a showcase of best nursing practices for the Magnet
community.
