    5/10/19 (Litchfield, MN) – Nurses at Meeker Memorial Hospital & Clinics (MMHC)were honored with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day.

    The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family.  Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

    The 2019 DAISY Award recipients at MMHC are Greg Christensen, RN and Brenda Beste, RN.  In addition, three Meeker Memorial Commitment to Excellence awards were presented by Amy Stolt, Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) and Kurt Waldbillig, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the ongoing commitment to excellence and dedicated service demonstrated.  Awards went to Anne McKinley for Nursing Leadership, Sarah Oyen and Jessie Lee were recognized for their commitment as a Nurse.  Meeker Memorial Hospital & Clinics congratulates these nurses and thanks them.  We recognize all Meeker Memorial nurses for their dedication and care for patients at Meeker Memorial Hospital & Clinics!
