Established in 2011, the ENA Lantern Award recognizes excellence in emergency departments

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its establishment in 2011, the ENA Lantern Award has recognized emergency departments for demonstrating exceptional and innovative leadership, practice, education, advocacy and research.

The 2024 class of ENA Lantern Award recipients is the largest yet, with a total of 94 emergency departments around the country receiving the honor.

"Calling and notifying these EDs that they are Lantern recipients, has been a highlight of my year," said ENA President Chris Dellinger, MBA, BSN, RN, FAEN. "These departments put so much time and energy into not only the application but work that goes into creating the best patient care and healthy work environments. It was thrilling to see the excitement on their faces when I gave them the news."

As part of the application, emergency departments share stories highlighting their commitment to care and the initiatives to improve nursing staff's well-being. Applications are reviewed and scored by the ENA Lantern Award Committee. The award lasts for a three-year cycle, after which emergency departments are eligible to apply again.

With their selection for this year's class, five hospitals have received the award more than once: Boston Children's Hospital (five-time awardee), Penn Medicine – Pennsylvania Hospital (four-time awardee), Children's Hospital Los Angeles (three-time awardee), Nemours Children's Hospital Florida (three-time awardee) and TriHealth Bethesda Butler (three-time awardee).
