Hospitals nominate ROSE and DAISY award winners
FOSTORIA – ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital and ProMedica Memorial Hospital announce the winners of the ROSE and DAISY awards.
The DAISY Award is given to a deserving nurse to celebrate the extraordinary compassion she provides to patients and families every day. The award began in 1999 and is dedicated to the life of Patrick Barnes, who was hospitalized for eight weeks after having dangerously low platelet counts. His family appreciated the compassionate care Patrick received and wanted to do something to recognize those who provide daily care.
Just days after his passing, Patrick’s family began talking about what they would do to help fill Patrick’s void. His wife, Tena, coined the acronym, DAISY, for Diseases Attacking the Immune System (DAISY). Through this award, the hope is that every nurse who receives the award will truly recognize the positive impact she is having on the patients she cares for.
The ROSE award was created in 2020 by ProMedica to recognize outstanding employees in all hospital roles. This award celebrates the extraordinary efforts of non-nursing employees who provide exceptional service to patients in any position.
Renee Whitta, cashier at Fostoria Community Hospital, and Gary Williams, patient transporter, Memorial Hospital, are the recipients of the ROSE award.
Christina Stearns RN, Acute Care, Fostoria Community Hospital, and Shannon Howell, RN, Acute Care, Memorial Hospital, are the recipients of the DAISY Award.
Each quarter, two employees will be selected for the DAISY award and the ROSE award from each hospital.
