Recognizing Our Finest

Did you receive extraordinary care or service by someone at Spencer Hospital? Consider nominating that individual for either a DAISY Award or a GEM Award. 

The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day. Spencer Hospital is proud to be a DAISY Award partner, recognizing a total of four nurses annually.

The DAISY Award honorees personify Spencer Hospital’s remarkable patient experience. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. They are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community.

The GEM award – which stands for “Going the Extra Mile” –recognizes hospital personnel who provide extraordinary service. Our “GEMS” are people who sparkle and provide outstanding customer service, yielding “Wow!” moments. Four GEM award recipients are selected annually, with two individuals honored during the semi-annual selection periods.
