Rewards and Recognition Programs

The DAISY Award

The DAISY Award was established nationally to recognize the extraordinary care nurses perform every day. Our nurses are being honored throughout the year with the DAISY Award.

DAISY Foundation

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, CA and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an auto-immune disease. The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
