Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses

In addition to celebrating excellence in nursing.

Origin of the Daisy Award

At the age of 33 Patrick Barnes passed away from an immune system disease, the exceptional care received by Pat from the nurses motivated his family to create the Foundation in his memory, with the aim of recognizing those extraordinary nursing professionals who make a difference in many people’s lives with their daily work.

Hence the name DAISY, Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY award is possible thanks to the group of Volunteer Ladies of this institution
