Say “Thank You” with a Nomination

We take great pride in meeting the needs of our community’s health, and we’re implementing the DAISY Award program for our nurses to be honored with the much-deserved recognition they’ve earned.

Help us celebrate the compassion and skill of our extraordinary nurses.

We are proud to partner with The DAISY Foundation to honor the compassionate care throughout the year. This program was started in 1999 by a family that received incredible kindness and compassion toward their loved one by the nurses who cared for Patrick. He was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which took his life.

The family came up with DAISY which stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, and they developed it to thank the nurses for his care. This award expresses gratitude toward nurses, recognizing them for the extraordinary and compassionate care they provide to patients and their families.

Any licensed nurse that provides care at our clinics, hospital, and long-term care facilities is eligible to receive this award.

McKenzie Health will present the Daisy Award twice a year – once during Hospital Week and once during the Annual Meeting.

"Our 88 year old mother was a patient for 2 weeks. Mom was on a roller coaster, we never knew what to expect. Everything was new and frightening to us as we watched her struggle to live. Through it all, Tami was there, working tirelessly, diligently, helping Mom and us understand issues and ramifications. She patiently explained things to us, sometimes more than once, until we got it. Of utmost importance to her was Mom's comfort. Tami was also concerned-expressed repeatedly-about each of us, Mom's family, as we went through our own emotional and exhausting roller coaster rides. We looked forward each day to seeing Tami. She obviously cared deeply for Mom. Tami became like family to us. I wanted to hug her hello and goodbye. Everyday her knowledge and skills were evident. Such as, for one tiny example, the day 02 saturation was dropping, chest tubes were in, Tami analyzed the best position to put mom into with those tubes in order to maximize 02 saturation. It worked. Tami's tireless, devoted, and skilled passion for our mother's well being made a huge impression on us. She stood out as a nurse willing and able to go beyond the normal call of duty."

Each Honoree receives a certificate commending her or him as an “Extraordinary Nurse.” The certificate reads: “In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.”

Honorees also receive a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Zimbabwe.
