Award Winner

Calvary Hospital and the Diseases Attacking the Immune System foundation recently honored a nurse, Linda Domino, presenting her with a DIASY award for her work at the palliative care facility during the second half of 2016.

The award is given biannually to an employee at Calvary who demonstrates excellent clinical expertise as well as compassionate care.

Honorees are expected to go above and beyond their job title and demonstrate a ‘healing touch’ with patients and their families. DAISY was founded by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of complications related to Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). Patrick really liked Cinnabons at the end of his life and always made sure there was enough of this culinary treat for all the nurses in his unit.
