  • Eisenhower Joins Elite Group with Magnet Designation

    Eisenhower Medical Center is proud to announce that it has achieved Magnet® recognition - a designation that indicates nursing professionalism, teamwork and excellence in patient care. Magnet recognition is determined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, which ensures that rigorous standards for nursing excellence are met and is the highest honor for nursing excellence that any hospital can receive. With this designation, Eisenhower Medical Center joins the international elite — just seven percent of national and international health care organizations are recognized by the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program. Eisenhower is the first and only hospital in the Inland Empire to earn this recognition.  click for more
  • Rehabilitation Clinic for Stroke Patients

    Typically, stroke patients who come to Eisenhower Medical Center spend three to seven days receiving neurological services in the hospital, followed by two or three weeks of inpatient rehabilitation. Depending on the severity of the stroke, many patients are then sent home with follow-up by home care services to evaluate safety issues and ensure successful adjustments to living at home. click for more
