EUH is a “Magnet” hospital, a designation earned by only 6% of U.S. hospitals for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. EUH has one of the highest case-mix indexes (a measure of complexity of illness treated) of any hospital in the country. In 2018 U.S. News & World Report again ranked EUH the No. 1 hospital in both metro Atlanta and Georgia.
