A Magnet Hospital
In 2004, the hospital became the first in the Phoenix area to be granted Magnet Recognition, the highest national designation for excellence in nursing care, by the American Nurses Association. North Mountain Hospital also was the first medical facility in the Phoenix area to reconfirm Magnet status, in 2009. The designation places the hospital among the nation's top 7 percent of hospitals for nursing care.

A Three-Time Beacon Award Recipient for Critical Care Excellence
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), the largest specialty nursing organization in the world, awarded the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital with a Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence in 2010.
By earning the Beacon, the Cardiovascular Unit joined its sister unit, North Mountain's Intensive Care Unit, which in 2007 became the first in the state to earn a Beacon Award and in 2009 became the nation's 30th hospital critical care department to earn a second Beacon Award.
Excellence in Trauma Care
North Mountain Hospital is home to John C. Lincoln's Level I Trauma Center, one of eight trauma facilities in Arizona designated as Level I by the state. Each year, the center cares for more than 3,000 of the region's most critically injured patients. Since opening in 1979, the center has invested heavily in high-quality technology and staff training in emergency care.
In 2010, the Level I Trauma Center received 2010 Outstanding Trauma Center Award, from Donor Network of Arizona, for high organ donation rates. In turn, Donor Network presented the Outstanding Trauma Surgeon Award to staff physician Stephen Gale, MD.
