Lake Huron Medical Center congratulates Daisy Award Recipient Anna Beneker, RN. The Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses is recognized in 2,800 healthcare facilities in the United States and 17 different countries.

Anna works as a registered nurse in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit and was nominated by her peers for accepting new challenges, and her compassionate patient care. She generates enthusiasm in her department and is eager to learn new things. Anna always has a smile and kind words to share with her patients, families and peers. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to teach those around her.

Anna’s clinical skills are excellent and her compassionate care exemplifies the kind of nurse patients, families and staff recognize as an outstanding role model. She is thorough in her work and strives to go above and beyond whenever possible.

“The DAISY award is the perfect way to recognize our nurses because it reflects a nursing environment which fosters care, trust, and compassion with her patients and peers,” comments Mary Jo West, Clinical Nurse Manager, Lake Huron Medical Center. “She promotes the culture which allows Lake Huron Medical Center to provide exceptional care, and is the kind of nurse that inspires you to give your best every day.”

The Daisy Award was created 1999 by members of the family of Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease ITP. The Barnes’ wanted to do something special to honor their son and came up with the name DAISY-an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. What continually resonated for them was the extraordinary care, kindness and compassion Patrick and the family received from his nurses during his illness.

Lake Huron Medical Center thanks Anna for everything she does each and every day to provide our patients and their families with high-quality, compassionate care.
