DAISY Award for NursesValley is proud to have nurses who go above and beyond for their patients. Our monthly DAISY Award presentations honor these nurses for the special roles they play in patient care. 

Each month, a nurse from The Valley Hospital and a nurse from Valley Home Care is selected to receive the DAISY Award, based on nominations from patients and/or family members.

In addition to celebrating the work they do every day, the award helps nurses see in themselves what their patients, families and colleagues see in them and help them recognize the powerful difference they make in others’ lives.
