Thompson received a certificate, Daisy Award pin, a hand-carved stone sculpture and a bouquet of daisies.

Carolyn Lucas, the patient access lead, was named recipient of the Rose Award.

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. This quarter, two co-workers at Flaget Memorial Hospital nominated Lucas for the Rose Award.
