Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is proud to partner with the not-for-profit Daisy Foundation to present the Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses. This award, given in collaboration with The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), recognizes the compassion, excellence in patient care and “super-human” efforts exhibited by nurses every day at Providence Holy Cross.
The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an auto-immune disease. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System and nearly 300 hospitals across the United States currently honor their nurses through the DAISY Program. The Barnes Family was so awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, they created this national award to say thank you to nurses everywhere. In addition to celebrating excellence in nursing, the DAISY Foundation also strives to fund nursing research through evidence-based practice projects.
