DCH Announces 2017 DAISY Award Winner

Desiree Dominguez was named the Daisy Award recipient for the year 2016, being nominated by numerous co-workers at Decatur County Hospital. We would also like to congratulate our other two nominees, Sandy Dougherty and Julie Benda.

The Daisy Award is an award and recognition started by the Patrick Barnes family, who believe in the impact that nurses have on lives of those who are sick as well as their families. The Daisy Award was created to recognize and honor an extraordinary nurse that has made an impact in lives of the patients, families and even his or her co-workers.

Desiree strives each and every day to give her very best to the patients, families, co-workers, and this hospital. It’s nurses like Desiree that give us our great reputation. She is always upbeat and positive, always willing to go the extra mile, and is one of the most dependable nurses in the business. We are blessed to have her play such an intricate role in this facility. Thank you Desiree! And congratulations on being our 2017 Daisy Award Winner!
