Employee Recognition

Brown Award

Weldon J. Brown established the Brown Award in honor of his parents, Eunice D. and Everett C. Brown, long-time residents of Boone.  Each year, BCH employees nominate co-workers for the award that demonstrates outstanding service and exceptional accomplishments.  The BCH Employee Rewards and Recognition Committee then selects one employee from all of the nominations to be recognized.  The award is given out yearly.

Daisy Award

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, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family.  When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.  We are proud to recognize our nurses with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.  The award is given out yearly.

IHA Hospital Hero Award

The Iowa Hospital Association’s (IHA) Hospital Hero Award honors individuals with exceptional commitment to care and service.  Hospital Heroes are nominated by their peers and award recipients are selected by other state hospital associations.
