We are currently accepting nominations year-round. The 2024 DAISY award will be announced during Nurses Week in early May.
Mitchell County Regional Health Center is proud to honor its outstanding nurses with the DAISY Award — an international program that celebrates skilled, compassionate nurses who provide care to patients and families every day.
The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an autoimmune disease. The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this award to say thank-you to nurses everywhere.
