OLOL receives magnet hospital honor

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A big congratulations is going out to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center on being designated as a magnet hospital.

This is the second time the hospital has received the distinction. The honor is given after a tough on-site evaluation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

"It really kind of puts that gold seal on our organization that recognizes across the country [that] this is one of the finest facilities of healthcare across the United States," said Scott Wester, OLOL president and CEO.

Only the top five percent of hospitals in the country are awarded such high marks.
