One of the most prominent ways that HealthTrust Workforce Solutions recognizes nurses who exhibit the utmost skill and compassion to their patients is through the presentation of DAISY Awards. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is recognized as a symbol of nursing excellence in 22 countries and in all 50 states.

His family sought to publicly recognize the nurses who provided Patrick with the highest quality of care during his eight weeks of hospitalization. Thus, the DAISY Award was born.
