DAISY Nurse Awards

The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that celebrates nurses around the world for the skillful, compassionate care they provide every day. It was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes to honor his memory and the exceptional nursing care he received before passing away from complications of an autoimmune disease in 1999. Today more than 2,700 healthcare facilities honor their nurses with The DAISY Award.

At CHRISTUS St. Vincent, each of our DAISY Award honorees will be celebrated with a special ceremony and traditional DAISY Award gifts: an official DAISY Award pin, a hand-carved sculpture, and cinnamon rolls (in honor of Patrick) for all who attend. Our honorees will also receive additional benefits and recognition through the DAISY Foundation and its sponsors.
