Coffeyville Regional Medical is proud to recognize associates with the BEE and DAISY Awards, starting October 5, 2020.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.

The BEE (Being Exceptional Everyday) Award honors and recognizes team members outside of nursing who go Beyond Exceptional Expectations. These team members provide extraordinary experiences for our patients, their families and visitors by exemplifying quality service and extraordinary care. Just as the Daisy cannot survive without the Bee, the nurses cannot survive without the outstanding teamwork provided by other healthcare professionals.

“We are thrilled to bring a new scope of recognition to CRMC’s highly deserving staff,” said Cindy Duncan, Director of Human Resources. “The DAISY and BEE Awards will recognize our staff with a professional prestige at national and international levels that we have not had before. We’re excited to spoil our honorees and expand these programs in the future.”

Employees may be nominated by patients, families, colleagues, and volunteers. The nomination forms are taken to a committee who then will decide on an award recipient for each category each month. At the end of the year an overall winner of each category will be chosen for a yearly award.
