Nominate a nurse for a DAISY Award

The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurse's every day. We are proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor monthly.

About the DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of an autoimmune disease at the age of 33. After Patrick died, his family was compelled to say "thank you!" to the nurses for their outstanding care and compassion shown to Patrick and his family during his hospitalization.

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony on his or her unit, and will receive a certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful hand-carved stone sculpture.
