The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skills and compassionate care given by nurses every day.
Winchester Medical Center is proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital Partner, recognizing our RNs with this special honor every quarter.
DAISY Award honorees personify Winchester Medical Center’s remarkable patient experience. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. They are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community.
The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.)
During Pat’s 8 week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided not only to Pat, but to everyone in his family. So one of the goals they set in creating a Foundation in Pat’s memory was to recognize extraordinary RNs everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do every day.
