Recognize a Colleague

Saint Agnes nurse

At Saint Agnes Medical Center, we strive to exceed the expectations of our patients and families, and we are blessed with individuals who are truly passionate about the work they do. If you or a loved one felt that one employee, clinical or non-clinical, touched your spirit while in the hospital, we want to hear about it!

There are now three ways to recognize our colleagues.

The DAISY Award honors nurses who demonstrate a commitment to excellence and our Core Values. These extraordinary nurses go above and beyond their normal call of duty by demonstrating their expertise and compassionate care with every patient, always.

We believe DAISY Award nominees represent the following:

  • Reverence: I connect with compassion and courtesy.
  • Commitment to Those who are Poor: I notice when others are suffering or struggling.
  • Justice: I build and maintain healthy and trusting relationships.
  • Stewardship: I support others in fulfilling our mission. I own every problem and seek to find resolution.
  • Integrity: I put people at the center of all I do by being present and attentive.
  • Safety: I provide an environment that prevents harm and nurtures healing for all.

The GEM Award recognizes colleagues for Going the Extra Mile to help patients and their families. No matter what the challenge, GEM Award recipients always take initiative, think positively, act professionally and perform above and beyond what is expected of them.

We believe a GEM Award nominee is a colleague who:

  • Offers kindness and connection to those we serve
  • Encourages and supports others
  • Maintains a positive attitude and cheerful spirit
  • Delivers excellent patient care
