Did you have excellent care from a nurse at St. Peter's Health? The Daisy Award recognizes nurses whose clinical skill and compassionate care exemplify the kind of nurse that our patients, their families, and our staff consider as outstanding. Daisy Award recipients go beyond the norm to demonstrate:

  • Empathy
  • Positivity
  • Selflessness
  • Kindness
  • Extraordinary Care
  • Humility

Daisy award winners are selected by St. Peter’s Health nursing administration from nominations by patients. The award is presented in collaboration with The American Organization of Nurse Executives and is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day.
