HealthcareSource Partners with The DAISY Foundation, Honors Exceptional Nurses

Celebrating Compassionate Care and Its Impact on Patients and Families

Woburn, MA – April 26, 2018 HealthcareSource®, a leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced it has formed a partnership with The DAISY Foundation, the world’s leading organization for nursing recognition.

The DAISY Foundation recognizes and celebrates nurses who go above and beyond in providing extraordinary compassionate and skillful care. The DAISY Foundation and HealthcareSource have partnered based on their shared vision for nursing excellence.

“The importance and value of compassionate, exceptionally skilled nurses cannot be overstated. At HealthcareSource, our tagline is ‘Quality Talent. Quality Care.’ Like DAISY, we believe that hiring, keeping, and growing exceptional nurses is the key to exceptional patient experiences,” said J.P. Fingado, Chief Executive Officer and President of HealthcareSource. “This partnership provides a unique and powerful opportunity for us to support and recognize the nursing profession, nursing leaders, and the millions of aspiring DAISY nurses across the country. We are proud to include compassion as a critical dimension for hiring in tools like our scientifically validated behavioral assessments.”

Adds Bonnie Barnes, FAAN, who cofounded the foundation with husband Mark Barnes, FAAN: “With HealthcareSource’s emphasis on hiring the right talent for the right position and nurturing that talent to provide higher quality care, delivered with compassion, we look forward to seeing many more powerful DAISY Award nominations in HealthcareSource’s client organizations.”

The DAISY Foundation was created in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died from complications of an auto-immune disease (the acronym DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System). Barnes’s family wanted to express their appreciation to nurses for the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family during his hospitalization. The organization partners with healthcare facilities to honor select nurses with The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses.
