DAISY and GEM Award honorees personify excellence at NCH and contribute to a remarkable patient experience.
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. NCH is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner. Each month, we recognize one of our nurses with this special honor for the important difference they make in the lives they touch.
The GEM Award (“Going Extra Miles”) was developed to recognize and reward the contributions and/or compassionate care given by staff (other than a nurse). Excellent care delivery involves coordination of a variety of skilled individuals of various specialties. Teamwork is core to our Northwest Community Healthcare mission: "We exist to improve the health of the communities we serve and to meet the individuals’ healthcare needs."
Each individual you recognize receives a beautiful certificate to honor their commitment to providing exemplary service to our patients and their families. When you share your story, the employee receives a special pin to thank him or her for representing NCH’s values.
