Lauren Beavers, RN, who works in the Flaget Birth Center, received the Daisy Award. Beavers was nominated by a patient of the Flaget Birth Center.

“All were great, but I had Lauren the most,” the patient said when describing the nursing team at Flaget. “Lauren made me more comfortable and less nervous about my entire experience.”

Beavers received a certificate, a Daisy Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture.

Similar to the Daisy Award, the Rose Award is a program that honors Flaget Memorial Hospital’s non-nursing personnel. The Rose Award, short for Recognition of Service Excellence, celebrates unsung heroes who work tirelessly to provide the best possible service.

Gayle Sweeney, the office coordinator of Bariatric Services, received the Rose Award. She was nominated by two of Flaget’s patients.

“Speaking from my personal experience, Gayle always went above and beyond when dealing with me,” one patient said. “Anytime I had a question or concern, she would always be more than glad to assist me in a timely and friendly manner. She made a nervous time for me feel less hectic and for that I am grateful.”

Sweeney received a certificate, a Rose Award pin and a bouquet of roses to display in her department.
