NICHE Exemplar Hospitals demonstrate organizational commitment to the quality care of older adults. Progressing through Early Implementation, Progressive, and Senior Friendly levels to achieve Exemplar designation recognizes a hospital's ongoing, high level dedication to geriatric medical care and preeminence in the implementation and quality of system wide interventions and initiatives.

The Exemplar status is achieved following a rigorous self evaluation by NICHE acute care hospitals of the current state and future goals of their NICHE programs. The requirements include implementation of the NICHE Geriatric Resource Nurse (GRN) model and evidence based protocols on all applicable units, including specialty units; implementation of systemic aging sensitive policies; inclusion of the input of patient, families, and community based providers in planning and implementation of NICHE initiatives; and assuming regional and national leadership roles.
