Share your story: Nominate a nurse for The DAISY Award


The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates nurses that demonstrate excellence every day through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. These nurses are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community. Swedish is proud to be a DAISY Award partner. We are committed to honoring our nurses in a variety of practices across multiple campuses.

Each DAISY Award honoree will be recognized at a celebration in her/his unit and will receive a beautiful, hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch, a memorable DAISY Award pin and a Certificate of Recognition. 

About The DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. During Pat’s eight-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided for him and his family, so they created The DAISY Foundation in Pat’s memory to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere. Learn more about the program.
