Virginia Hospital Center is among the 7% of hospital staffs nationwide that achieve the Magnet® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, signifying the highest level of recognition in nursing excellence. The standards required for Magnet designation demonstrate that nurses are highly educated and engaged in decisions about patient care.
“We hire only the very best nurses and look for those who have a desire to be part of a team that strives to surpass patient expectations every day. In addition to looking for the best nurses, we also invest heavily in our current nurses to sustain this culture of excellence,” says Darlene Vrotsos, MSN, BSN, RN, Senior Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer.
Virginia Hospital Center supports professional growth for nurses helping them achieve advanced nursing degrees and specialty certifications through educational opportunities, funding for training courses, tuition reimbursement and scholarships. Currently, 73% of our nurses have a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN) and 50% of eligible nursing staff are certified in specialty fields—well above national and state averages. Collaboration is key to excellent care. Virginia Hospital Center is a strong advocate for its nurses and provides a true collaborative environment in which the healthcare team works closely together, bringing skill, experience and mutual respect to the task of providing superior medical care for our patients.
“Nurses and physicians work very well together here to accomplish the best care for their patients,” says Vicki Conerly, MSN, BSN, RN, who recently joined Virginia Hospital Center as Associate Vice President, Women & Infant Health. “People here love what they do—they respect each other.”
