The DAISY Foundation is renowned for its commitment to celebrating the compassion, skill, and dedication of nurses worldwide. Through this collaboration, Orleans Community Health seeks to elevate the recognition of its nursing staff who consistently go above and beyond in providing compassionate and patient-centered care.

Orleans Community Health announced a partnership with the DAISY Foundation in 2024.

“The partnership with The DAISY Foundation underscores our commitment to acknowledging the exceptional work of our nurses who make a meaningful impact on the lives of our patients and their families every day,” said Kimberly Gray, chief nursing officer at Orleans Community Health. “Nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system, and we are excited to join hands with The DAISY Foundation to shine a spotlight on their extraordinary efforts.”

Established in 1999, the DAISY Foundation was created by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at the age of 33 due to complications of the autoimmune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem.
