Only 8 percent of the nation's hospitals have Magnet status. Deer Valley Medical Center, John C. Lincoln Medical Center, Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center, Scottsdale Shea Medical Center and Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center have each earned the prestigious recognition.

Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center, Scottsdale Shea Medical Center and Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center are scheduled for site visits from the American Nurses Credentialing Center Dec. 5-8, 2016, as part of its application for re-designation.
