DAISY Award - Recognize a Nurse

The DAISY Award

The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award) is a national award honoring the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. Maine Medical Center (MMC) is proud to honor our nurses who show dedication, serve as a role model, show extraordinary compassion & skills and generate enthusiasm and energy toward meeting the challenges of nursing.

Nominate a nurse and tell us why they deserve national recognition.  


Awarded monthly to a nurse who demonstrates exceptional caring and compassion. Patients, families, colleagues, and visitors may nominate a nurse. DAISY says, “Thank you!” and recognizes, honors and celebrates why nurses became a nurse – compassionate care and making a difference in patient’s lives.

The PETAL Award recipient demonstrates patient advocacy, leadership, teamwork, and makes a difference in a patient and/or family’s life. Nominations are accepted throughout the year and one nursing support staff is recognized each month.
