HCA-affiliated TriStar Summit Medical Center has been designated as a Pathway to Excellence organization by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). TriStar Summit is currently the only hospital in Tennessee to hold the designation and is one of only 139 hospitals designated nationwide.

According to ANCC, Pathway-designated organizations are deemed the best places to work for nurses, with high nurse satisfaction and retention. Research shows that healthy work environments improve not only nurse satisfaction but also patient satisfaction and quality of care.

"Just as TriStar Summit Medical Center continues to meet the needs of a growing community, our nurses continue to raise the bar in defining patient care," said Jeff Whitehorn, chief executive officer at TriStar Summit. "The Pathway designation demonstrates to our staff and our community that we recognize the value of nurses' contributions. Congratulations to all of our nurses for making TriStar Summit a great place to work and to receive care."

To earn the Pathway to Excellence designation, ANCC requires the healthcare organization to demonstrate that it has integrated practice standards into its operating policies, procedures and management structure. These standards focus on the workplace, a balanced lifestyle for nurses and policies that support nurses on the job.

"The Pathway to Excellence designation is a tremendous honor," said Mary Ann Angle, chief nursing officer of TriStar Summit. "Through our shared governance model, the bedside nurses are empowered to make a difference in the quality of care we provide. The nurses at TriStar Summit are committed to the most excellent care for each patient, every day, and this is what sets us apart from other hospitals."
