Bassett Healthcare Network nursing leaders were recently pleased to present six nurses with DAISY Awards at locations across the network.

Bassett's DAISY Award program recognizes six nurses for their exceptional care each quarter in addition to presenting an annual award in the fall. Each honoree receives a certificate, a hand-crafted statue, a pin to wear on their ID badges, flowers, and various benefits from the DAISY Foundation.

Here are the 2023 Third Quarter DAISY Award winners, along with a quotation from their nominations. Be sure to congratulate these nurses when you see them – and thank them for their commitment to their patients.
