Sunshine Award

Just like a DAISY would not be able to grow without the help of the BEE, the SUNSHINE makes every day brighter. Our nurses and patient care team could not do what they do for our patients without the outstanding teamwork of our support staff.

That’s why Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville recognizes support staff members who work alongside the patient care team through a similar honor called the Sunshine Award. Anyone at Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville who is in a non-patient care role – such as Accounting or others – can be nominated for the Sunshine Award. Just like the DAISY and BEE Award, nominations can be submitted by patients, families, and colleagues. Recipients will be chosen by a committee at Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville and will be honored with the Sunshine Award throughout the year.

Each honoree will receive a Sunshine Award pin, a certificate recognizing them as an extraordinary team member, a bag filled with goodies, and treats for the department.

  • Having a kind and positive attitude that helps brighten the care environment for patients, families and colleagues
