St. John’s Medical Center is pleased to recognize Mary Ann Cordairre,
RN, as a recipient of the Daisy Award for compassionate care. Mary Ann,
an employee at St. John’s since December 2008, was presented with
a statue called “The Healer,” a certificate of recognition,
a Daisy Pin, and a daisy bouquet. Mary Ann works in the outpatient surgery unit.
St. John’s began participating in the national Daisy Award Program
last year. The Daisy Award program has recognized over 5,000 nurses in
over 400 healthcare organizations in the U.S. and Canada since its inception
in 1999. The purpose of this program is to celebrate the compassionate
care nurses provide every day.
According to Chief Nursing Officer Lynn Campbell, RN, Mary Ann was selected
because she is caring, compassionate, positive, fun, and a great team
member who is always willing to go the extra mile. “She is an extraordinary
asset to our team,” said Lynn Campbell, Chief Nursing Officer. “We
are proud and lucky to have her as part of our staff,” she said.
Daisy Award Nominations are accepted from fellow nurses, managers, patients,
families, administrators, and physicians. Nomination forms are available
at the hospital or at tetonhospital.org.
