These recent accolades, which were given based on a challenging set of criteria established by U.S. News and World Report, are just two of many that Providence Medical Group and Providence St. Peter Hospital have collected over the years.

In addition, in 2015, Providence St. Peter Hospital received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for the second time in a row.

The Magnet Recognition Program is designed to recognize health care organizations that go above and beyond in providing quality, innovative care from the hands of well-qualified nurses. The designation is regarded as the gold standard for nursing excellence.

Providence St. Peter Hospital is one of only three medical facilities in the state and one of 375 out of nearly 6,000 health care organizations nationwide to receive Magnet recognition. It is an outstanding local choice for quality care, right here in Olympia.
