Recovery Centers of America

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA — Nurses at Recovery Centers of America (RCA) are set to be honored with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses®, a significant recognition reflecting their dedication and compassionate care towards patients and their families. This accolade is part of the DAISY Foundation‘s efforts to highlight the critical role nurses play in healthcare, particularly in the treatment and care of patients with severe diseases and conditions.

The DAISY Foundation, a non-profit established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), aims to acknowledge the profound impact nurses have on their patients and families’ lives. The foundation’s name, an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, underscores its commitment to recognizing those who provide exceptional care amid challenging diagnoses.

Nurses at RCA, a leading provider in addiction recovery services, will be eligible for nomination by patients, their families, and colleagues through a dedicated portal. The award ceremonies will be a year-round event, celebrating nominated nurses in the presence of their peers, patients, and visitors, underscoring the appreciation for their hard work and emotional support provided to those in need.

Bonnie Barnes, Co-Founder of The DAISY Foundation, emphasized the personal inspiration behind the award, recounting the extraordinary nursing care her family received during her brother Patrick’s illness. She highlighted that despite the critical role nurses play, their efforts often go unrecognized.

Ashley Gardner, Corporate Vice President of Nursing at RCA, expressed pride in the new partnership with the DAISY Foundation. She noted that the DAISY Award, known for its international recognition and evidence-based selection process, aligns with RCA’s mission to value and celebrate the exceptional contributions of its nursing staff.
