American Association of Critical Care Nurses
Munroe Regional is the only four-time Beacon Award recipient in the state of Florida and one of only six in the nation to receive this distinction four or more times.
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) created the Beacon Award to recognize individual units that distinguish themselves by improving every facet of patient care. For patients and their families, the Beacon Award signifies exceptional care through improved outcomes and greater overall satisfaction. For critical care nurses, a Beacon Award can mean a positive and supportive work environment with greater collaboration between colleagues and leaders, higher morale and lower turnover.
