The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses recently conferred a gold-level Beacon Award for Excellence on the Maury Regional Medical Center Critical Care Unit.

Maury Regional is the only adult critical care unit in Tennessee to achieve gold status.

The Beacon Award for Excellence recognizes unit caregivers, who successfully improve patient outcomes and align practices with AACN’s six Healthy Work Environment Standards.

Units that achieve this three-year, three-level award with gold, silver or bronze designations meet national criteria consistent with the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the National Quality Healthcare Award.

“This achievement is reflective of the commitment by our Critical Care team to provide evidence-based care to patients who are facing critical illnesses. It is especially meaningful coming on the heels of one of the most challenging times that health care teams have ever faced,” said Chief Nursing Officer Deborah Lumpkins, DNP, RN, NEA-BC.
