Staff Awards

Westlake Hospital also works to reward staff members that do an exceptional job. The Daisy Award was founded by the Barnes family who experienced extraordinary nursing care while their son, Patrick, was terminally ill. The Barnes family was so grateful to the nurses who cared for Patrick that after he passed away, they decided to create a nationwide recognition program for the nurses who go above and beyond in order to care for their patients. 

If you have seen or experienced extraordinary care from a Westlake Hospital nurse, please take the time to submit a nomination form so that the nurse can receive the recognition he/she deserves! Patients, family members/visitors, volunteers, and any staff can nominate a nurse!
