A Legacy of Compassionate Care

The DAISY Award, established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, celebrates the profound impact of nurses who go above and beyond to care for their patients. Patrick’s family created this award in honor of the extraordinary care he received during his illness. Today, the DAISY Award continues to shine a light on the critical role nurses play in delivering compassionate and exceptional healthcare worldwide.

At MCH, we are deeply proud of our nursing team’s continued commitment to excellence. As we celebrate the remarkable achievements of our nurses, we reflect on the strong foundation of care and dedication that has sustained us for over 100 years.
