Award Winning Employees
Riverview Regional Medical Center is proud to have more than 200 employees that make up our team. From doctors, nurses, and therapists, to electricians, EVS, and nutrition crew, our hospital operates every day because of the people inside. The hard work of our team does not go unnoticed. In fact, we aim to recognize our outstanding team members for the life-saving efforts they provide from the front-line, to behind the scenes.
Take a look at some of our Award Programs in place that allows patients, families, and peers to nominate a team member who goes above and beyond at their job.
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, Patrick’s family deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown not only to Patrick, but to all of them as well. When he passed, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.
Riverview Regional Medical Center partnered with the DAISY Foundation to recognize excellence in nursing and the phenomenal things our nurses do for our patients, their families, our facility, and the community.
