Recognizing Our Nurses with the Daisy Award
The DAISY Award was established by the Daisy Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died of an auto-immune disease. The Daisy Award recognizes nurses who exemplifies compassion, enthusiasm and energy, and who establishes a special connection with a patient/family.

John Knipe, RN, was recently awarded the DAISY Award. He was recognized by several patients who wrote, "Nurse John Knipe is being called to recognition for his gentle bedside manner and lighthearted personality. His soul is kind and he can change a bad day into a good one. We want to bring him and his work to the forefront. He has a wonderful smile and honest heart. He never ever changes. God bless him and others like him. He made our recovery easier."

Kristin Cobb, RN, was also recognized with the DAISY Award for acting with compassion. The actions Kristin displayed ended up preventing further health issues and saving a patients’ life.
