DAISY Award

The Daisy AwardDid a nurse give you wonderful care at Athens Regional Medical Center? Nominate your nurse for the DAISY Award.

The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care nurses give to patients.

Athens Regional is proud to take part in the DAISY Award program. It's sponsored by the DAISY Foundation, which was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura. DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.

Each DAISY Award honoree is recognized at a public ceremony and receives a certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer's Touch. Additionally, staff on the winner's unit celebrate with Cinnabon® cinnamon rolls - a favorite of Patrick's during his illness.
