Nurses are often said to be the “unsung heroes” of healthcare. At Med Center Health, we just call them “heroes.” They are the backbone of any premier healthcare system, indispensable parts of any successful team. We work hard to make sure these valuable healthcare professionals get all the credit, respect, and rewards they deserve.

Want to say thank you to a nurse? Share your story!
The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!
