The DAISY Foundation and UnitedHealthcare partner to award nurses for delivering quality and compassionate care

SEATTLE--()--Twenty-two nurses of Swedish Medical Center received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, presented by The DAISY Foundation and UnitedHealthcare, at a special ceremony today at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Wash.

“In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.”

Nurses received a certificate commending them for being an “Extraordinary Nurse.” The certificate reads: “In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.”

The DAISY Foundation’s unique recognition program is part of many hospitals’ recruitment and retention programs, helping to offset the acute shortage of nurses nationwide. Each month, nurses are selected by their nursing administration and peers to receive the DAISY Award, established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Barnes, 33, died in 1999 at Swedish from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.
