Beacon Awards for Excellence

Beacon Awards for Excellence

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses recognizes hospital units that show remarkable collaboration, and high staff morale. These units receive the Beacon Award for Excellence in bronze, silver or gold. Honorees have also shown an emphasis on evidence-based care and low hospital-acquired infection rates. Designations last for three years.

In March 2018, Salem Hospital’s intermediate care unit earned the Gold Beacon — the highest level award. This makes Salem Health one of only six hospitals in Oregon to hold the gold designation. Salem Hospital will be assessed again for this award in March 2020.

Salem Hospital's intensive care unit was the first in Oregon to earn this award in 2007 — then earned three more consecutive Silver Beacons before receiving the Gold Beacon award in October 2018. Salem Hospital will be assessed again for this award in October 2022.

Salem Hospital's cardiovascular care unit earned its second Silver Beacon in 2019. Salem Hospital will be assessed again for this award in October 2021.
