Methodist Hospitals Names New DAISY Award Winners - April 2, 2018

Methodist Hospitals is a Daisy Award Partner.  The Daisy Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day.

Nurses are honored with this award three times a year.  Patients and visitors may nominate a deserving nurse by filling out a nomination form and dropping it in the special counter top displays at the front desks and inpatient units. Each Daisy Award Honoree is recognized at a public ceremony in her or his unit and receives a certificate of recognition, a DAISY award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled Heart’s Touch.  Methodist is proud to announce the winners of the DAISY Award in March.
