DAISY Team of the Year Founders 12

Nursing is a team effort. Like a well-oiled machine, the nursing staff on each unit work together to ensure that all patients receive the care and compassion they need. Each year, the DAISY Team Award recognizes one exceptional team that truly represent the extraordinary patient-centered care exhibited by nurses every day. This year, the honor went to the staff of Founders 12, a general medicine unit.
