The DAISY Award

Our health system participates in an international recognition program, The DAISY Award, started in memory of J. Patrick Barnes to express gratitude to nurses for outstanding, compassionate care. The program honors one registered nurse each month. Winning nurses receive a special pin and a hand-carved statue award. DAISY Award winners are also entitled to various scholarships.

Our nurses are nominated by anyone in the organization — patients, family members, other nurses, physicians, other clinicians and staff — anyone who experiences or observes extraordinary compassionate care being provided by a nurse.

To nominate your nurse for The Daisy Award, please fill out this online form. Thank you for taking the time to show your appreciation.
