The DAISY Award
We are proud to partner with The DAISY Foundation to honor the compassionate care of our extraordinary nurses throughout the year.
What is the DAISY Award?
DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The Foundation was formed in January 2000, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The DAISY Award, presented in collaboration with The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses do every day all over the country. Nurses receive the DAISY Award for their clinical skills, compassionate care, exemplary service, and continued commitment to excellence.
“We are proud to be among the organizations participating in The DAISY Award program,” says Caryn Iverson, Chief Nursing Officer for Memorial Medical Center in Las Cruces, NM. “Nurses are heroes every day. It’s important that our nurses know their work is highly valued, and The DAISY Foundation provides a way for us to do that.”
