Do you know a Memorial Healthcare System nurse who goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide compassionate care to our patients and their families? If so, show your appreciation by nominating that nurse for The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (DAISY Award).

Established in 1999 by the DAISY Foundation, The DAISY Award is a national recognition program that honors a deserving nurse each month or quarter, based on criteria that meets the hospital’s mission and values as it relates to patient care. The award not only shines a light on their great clinical skills and leadership, it celebrates the extraordinary compassion nurses provide patients and families every day.

Recipients of The DAISY Award receive a:

  • Certificate in a handsome portfolio, proclaiming the recipient as an "Extraordinary Nurse"
  • DAISY Award pin (perfect for their ID badge)
  • Unique, hand-carved, serpentine stone sculpture from Zimbabwe, entitled "A Healer's Touch"
  • Spotlight page on the DAISY Foundation website that describes why they're being honored

Each winner’s facility also receives a large banner that can be displayed for a month to celebrate the award and highlight the special role nurses play in the high-quality care that Memorial Healthcare System is known for.
