About the DAISY Award

The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care provided by nurses every day. Cullman Regional is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing our outstanding nurses with this prestigious honor.

DAISY is An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Foundation was formed in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family.
