Meet our Daisy winners

Sept. DAISY Winner

Sandra Davis, R.N., BSN

Sandra Davis, R.N., BSN, of Montgomery Memorial Hospital, is shown with the award she received as the September winner of FirstHealth’s DAISY nursing recognition. Davis has been with Montgomery Memorial for 38 years and currently leads the nursing care team for short-team rehab patients. A certified gerontological nurse, she describes caring for elderly patients as her “passion.” She was nominated for the award by a co-worker who says, “The first thing I noticed about her was the overwhelming compassion that she displayed to everyone she touched. She exhibits patience with even the most difficult patients and always has a smile and a touch for all she meets.”


Pam Tyler, R.N., of Richmond Memorial Hospital's Intensive Care Unit, is the August winner of the FirstHealth DAISY Award for nursing excellence.

Tyler was nominated for the award by a fellow nurse who mentioned her commitment to the highest standards of professional practice and her overall professionalism in her nominating letter. “Pam is obviously not working here for just a paycheck,” the nomination said. “She goes above and beyond to make sure the patient is cared for and feels as if they are receiving the highest care possible.”

July DAISY Award winner is Ann Whitaker, R.N., of Outpatient at Moore Regional Hospital.

Whitaker was nominated for the award by a patient of more than 10 years. Her nomination letter reads in part: “Her compassionate care never ceases to amaze me.  Her service in her work environment is excellent. The material in my file is always current. She always seems to be helpful when other nurses need advice…FirstHealth is fortunate to employ such a wonderful nurse.”

June DAISY Award winner is Sheryl Loehr, R.N., with the CVT Unit at Moore Regional Hospital.

Loehr was nominated for the award by Amy Denson of Greenville, who was beginning her nursing career at Moore Regional when she met Loehr. Although Denson no longer works for FirstHealth, she saw a newspaper story about FirstHealth’s participation in the DAISY program and went online to nominate Loehr. “She leads by example,” Denson said in her letter of nomination. “I know first hand that Sheryl is a true asset to the entire FirstHealth organization.”

May 2013 Daisy winner is Aubrey Parker, R.N., Intensive Care Unit at Richmond Memorial Hospital

Aubrey is everything a nurse should strive to be. She is professional, proficient and proactive. She offers compassionate care and not only reaches out to her patients and their needs, but thinks outside of the box and tries to meet the emotional needs of the families too. I would be proud to follow in her footsteps. If I am half the nurse that she is, the world will be a better place when I reach it.
Nominated by Mary Gayle Sweet, Secretary/NAII
