Partnering with the Daisy Foundation to Recognize Extraordinary Nurses

Henry Mayo is proud to be one of 2,600 healthcare facilities that partner with the DAISY Foundation™, a recognition program for nurses. The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation was formed in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes (who died at age 33 of complications of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura). The nursing care he received when hospitalized inspired his family to recognize exceptional nurses. Congratulations to the first Henry Mayo recipient, Diane Plouffe, RN, who was awarded the honor in February. IYH
