Healer's Touch Sculpture Honors Our Nurses – Organizational DAISY Award
EvergreenHealth accepted the gift of a Healer's Touch sculpture during a March 21, 2022 ceremony at the Silver entrance to the hospital. The gift is a tribute to EvergreenHealth's entire nursing staff in hospitals, homes, hospice and clinics. Thank you to Aetna, The DAISY Foundation and the EvergreenHealth Foundation for honoring the healers among us. And thank you to our community for choosing us for your care! We invite you to see the Healer's Touch sculpture at your next visit to our Kirkland campus. It's in the Silver (West) entry to the hospital. Or watch a brief video recap of the event below.
About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the Barnes family in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 30 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP).
Touched by the remarkable care, clinical skills and compassion demonstrated by nurses during Patrick’s illness, the Barnes family made it their mission to recognize exceptional nurses around the country.
