  • The DAISY Award in Nursing

    Daisy logo

    Dana-Farber is one of approximately 1,500 hospitals that participate in the DAISY Award program, sponsored by the DAISY Foundation (Diseases Attacking the Immune System).

    The DAISY Foundation established the DAISY Award in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, whose parents created the foundation in Patrick's memory because they experienced firsthand the skills, care, and compassion of nurses in caring for their son.

    Former honorees

    Awarded four times a year at Dana-Farber, the DAISY Award recognizes the extraordinary work nurses do every day. Nurses who are selected as DAISY Award recipients are celebrated for the compassionate and extraordinary care they have provided for their patients and families.

    All nurses nominated for the DAISY Award are recognized with a nomination pin. Recipients of the DAISY Award are honored at a DAISY Award event on their unit, and are presented with a hand-carved sculpture entitled, "A Healer’s Touch."
