    Hospital Awards

    Through the generosity of our donors and the hospital commitment to recognition of excellence, The Miriam Hospital supports a number of scholarships and awards to its staff members. Hospital awards include the Patient Safety Award and the Sapolsky Quality Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year Awards. 

    Nursing recognition includes:

    • The Jaffe Foundation Award for Excellence in Nursing
      Edwin Jaffe established this award after being a patient at The Miriam Hospital. He was so impressed with the quality of the nursing care that he funded the award to recognize nursing staff members for their commitment to providing superior nursing care.
    • The Hurvitz Fund provides support for education and attendance at conferences.
    • The DAISY Award recognizes nurses for compassion and clinical expertise. The Miriam Hospital is a proud partner of the DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Foundation which was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of an auto-immune disease. Quarterly, The Miriam Hospital Unit Council Steering Committee solicits nominations and reviews all nominees in a blind peer review process to select the nurse who best meets award criteria and who models caring relationships.

    Professional Community Awards

    Active in their professional organizations and communities, Miriam Hospital nurses continue to receive recognition from, and hold offices in, state and national organizations.

    Most recently, the intensive care unit at The Miriam Hospital has attained a silver-level Beacon Award for Excellence from The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.
