WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses -- AACN -- recently conferred a silver-level Beacon Award for Excellence once again on the Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) at White Plains Hospital.

The Beacon Award for Excellence — a significant milestone on the path to exceptional patient care and healthy work environments — recognizes unit caregivers who successfully improve patient outcomes and align practices with AACN’s six Healthy Work Environment Standards. Units that achieve this three-year, three-level award with a gold, silver or bronze designation meet national criteria consistent with Magnet Recognition, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the National Quality Healthcare Award.

White Plains Hospital is a repeated recipient of the Beacon award; the ICU having first having received it in 2014.

AACN President Karen McQuillan applauded the commitment of the caregivers in the White Plains Hospital CCU for working together to meet and exceed the high standards set forth by the Beacon Award for Excellence. “The Beacon Award for Excellence recognizes caregivers in stellar units whose consistent and systematic approach to evidence-based care optimizes patient outcomes. Units that receive this national recognition serve as role models to others on their journey to excellent patient and family care,” she explains.

Leigh Anne McMahon, Senior Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer at White Plains Hospital said, “It is an honor to once again be recognized with the AACN Beacon Award for Excellence. Our CCU team goes above and beyond every day to bring the highest quality of care to those who need it most. Their outstanding skills, dedication and compassion working with our patients are truly exemplary.”
