Pathway to Excellence Designation

Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Announces American Nurses Credentialing Center Pathway to Excellence Designation

Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton has achieved Pathway to Excellence® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This is the second time that the not-for-profit hospice organization has been recognized with this designation.

In 2016, Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton was named the first and only Pathway to Excellence designated hospice in the nation. It continues to be the only Pathway to Excellence designated hospice in the nation.

The Pathway to Excellence designation identifies the elements of interprofessional work environments where nurses can flourish and feel empowered. The designation substantiates nursing job satisfaction at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton and identifies it as one of the best places to work.

“We are so proud of our nurses achieving this wonderful distinction and accreditation again,” said Kent Anderson, CEO of Ohio’s Hospice. “We are honored to provide a work environment where our nurses can flourish and feel empowered. Thanks to our nursing leadership, our nurses fully support our mission of celebrating the lives of those we have the privilege of serving by providing superior care and superior services to each patient and family.”

The Pathway to Excellence designation is granted based on the confirmed presence of the six Pathway to Excellence Practice Standards:

  • Shared decision-making
  • Leadership
  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Well-being
  • Professional development

For an organization to earn the Pathway to Excellence distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment — as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be integrated in the facility’s practices, policies and culture. Nurses in the organization validate the presence of the criteria in the organization through participation in a completely voluntary and confidential online survey.

As a Pathway to Excellence designated organization, Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, is committed to creating an environment where nurses excel and feel valued as integral members of interprofessional health care teams. This designation confirms to the public that nurses working at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton know their efforts are supported. The honor encourages other nurses to join their colleagues in this desirable and nurturing environment.

“We are so proud of our nursing staff for, once again, showing the nation that nurses and their work environment at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton matters,” said Mary Murphy, MS, RN, CNS, AOCN, ACHPN, chief nursing and care officer at Ohio’s Hospice and president of Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton. “Their care and pride in serving our mission makes a difference every day in the lives of our patients and their families.”
