Peña, MAN, R.N., Magnet®  and Pathway® Oversight; and (5th from right) Ms. Maria Martina Geraldine Q. Dimalibot, PhD, R.N., Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer of Nursing Care Group.

St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City is pleased to announce it has achieved Pathway to Excellence designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The Pathway to Excellence designation identifies the elements of interprofessional work environments where nurses can flourish and feel empowered. The designation substantiates nursing job satisfaction at St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, and identifies it as one of the best places to work.

“The Pathway to Excellence designation is a great achievement for St. Luke’s Global City, and affirms that our nurses do indeed work and thrive in a positive practice environment,” says Dr. Arturo S. De La Peña, the President and CEO of St. Luke’s Medical Center. “Our nurses are more than just front liners, and we trust them as valuable team members who directly impact patient care, safety, and satisfaction.”

The Pathway to Excellence designation is granted based on the confirmed presence of the six Pathway to Excellence Practice Standards:

  1. Shared decision-making
  2. Leadership
  3. Safety
  4. Quality
  5. Well-being
  6. Professional development

For an organization to earn the Pathway to Excellence distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment—as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be integrated in the facility’s practices, policies, and culture. Nurses in the organization validate the presence of the criteria in the organization through participation in a completely voluntary and confidential online survey.

As a Pathway to Excellence designated organization, St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City is committed to creating an environment where nurses excel and feel valued as integral members of interprofessional health care teams. This designation confirms to the public that nurses working at St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City know their efforts are supported. The honor encourages other nurses to join their colleagues in this desirable and nurturing environment.

The Pathway to Excellence designation is perfectly suited to and desired by health care organizations around the world.
