The DAISY Awards (for nurses)

The DAISY Awards is an international program to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do every day.

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of an autoimmune disease. During Pat’s hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided Pat and his family.

Baptist Health is proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital Partner, recognizing our nurses with this special honor every quarter. Each DAISY Award honoree is recognized at a public ceremony on his/her unit and receives a beautiful certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled “A Healer’s Touch.”

The LOTUS Awards (for non-nurse clinical caregivers)

The LOTUS Awards was established by Baptist Health to honor our non-nursing healthcare heroes. These amazing team members provide extraordinary compassionate care and service to our patients, families and coworkers on a daily basis.

Baptist Health is proud to recognize these caregivers quarterly with a public ceremony on their unit or department. Each honoree receives a portfolio certificate, LOTUS Award pin, insulated LOTUS Award tumbler and a LOTUS crystal sculpture.
