Pathway to Excellence™ Designation

Further proof of the quality healthcare we provide is found in our Pathway to Excellence™ designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association. Menninger was the first psychiatric hospital in Texas to achieve this designation.

The designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of nurses at Menninger and identifies it as one of the best places to work. To earn the distinction, an organization must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment — as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be present in the facility’s practices, policies and culture. Nurses in the organization verify the presence of the criteria in the organization through participation in a confidential online survey.


The Menninger Clinic is affiliated with Baylor College of Medicine, one of the nation’s leading medical schools. Menninger’s affiliation with Baylor guarantees us top quality psychiatric residents and fellows, who train under our experienced clinicians.
