SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The country's largest nursing group is giving recognition to three Utah hospitals for their excellence.

L-D-S Hospital in Salt Lake City, Cottonwood Hospital in Murray and Alta View Hospital in Sandy all earned the highest designation, called "magnet," from the American Nurses Association.

Out of the nation's six-thousand hospitals, only three percent have received magnet status.

The award is given to hospitals that provide good nursing care, demonstrate leadership in advancing, improve patient-safety measures and promote opportunities for research.

Hospital officials say patients at magnet hospitals experience lower mortality rates, shorter lengths of stay and increased satisfaction.
