Magnet hospitals understand that healthcare providers no longer work with a homogeneous stakeholder population (including healthcare professionals, employees, and patients); thus, organizations must ensure that their practices accommodate the patients and employees of today and tomorrow. Although the medical center did not pursue its Magnet status goal, it is on the path to transforming its culture into a culturally competent environment. Such an environment allows the organization to be better poised for success when the time is right to, once again, pursue Magnet designation.
