Ten years ago, UH Portage Medical Center (formerly Robinson Memorial Hospital) embarked on a
journey that very few hospitals undertake. We committed ourselves to achieving
Magnet status, the gold standard of nursing excellence. We achieved
certification in 2006 and, after four years of continuous improvement, we were
redesignated in 2011. UH Portage Medical Center is once again applying for re-designation.
