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

Kathy works as a registered nurse in the Ambulatory Surgical Unit and was nominated by her peers for going above and beyond, each and every day. Kathy is a wealth of knowledge, quick to spring into action and always with a smile. One peer stated, “A nurse like Kathy is an asset to our organization. She is always willing to help out, is a team player and is loved by staff and patients alike.”

Beyond her clinical skills, Kathy is known for remaining calm and reassuring under pressure, maintaining a positive attitude and her professionalism.

“Kathy cultivates an environment which allows Lake Huron Medical Center to provide exceptional care, and is the kind of nurse who inspires you to give your best every day,” comments Pat Roberts, RN, MS, Chief Nursing Officer, Lake Huron Medical Center. “The DAISY award is the perfect way to recognize our nurses because it reflects a nursing mindset which fosters care, trust, and compassion with her patients and peers.”

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 Kathy for everything she does each and every day to provide our patients and their families with high-quality, compassionate care.
