Our partnership with the DAISY Foundation enables us to honor and celebrate the extraordinary and compassionate care that nurses provide every day. 

“It is always with pride that we speak of Medtronic as an Industry Partner for DAISY's mission of gratitude and meaningful recognition of nurses for their extraordinary compassionate care. We cannot do what we do for nurses now in nearly 5,300 healthcare facilities and nursing schools in 32 countries without the support of a select number of companies like Medtronic. Medtronic's appreciation and deep understanding of our work means the world to us. We always look forward to welcoming members of the Medtronic team to our virtual DAISY Award celebrations. Their presence helps connect them to their true purpose in working for a medical company, and Chief Nursing Officers welcome them warmly to the Zoom screen. (I can’t wait until we can do these presentations in person again!)

We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial future together.  For now, though, we thank Medtronic profoundly for being on this journey with us as The DAISY Award spreads joy among nurses around the world and gives patients and families a meaningful way to express their gratitude to the extraordinary compassionate nurses who care for them.​”
