On May 9th, Davin Healthcare Workforce Solutions hosted its annual DAISY Award Ceremony. The Davin Healthcare team came together to honor this year’s recipient of the DAISY Foundation’s DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses®, Jessica Hanehan, NP.
“Jessica is always a pleasure to work with. She has been an amazing asset to any facility that she has provided care for, as well for Davin Healthcare. She is a great nurse who has set and accomplished many great goals for herself. We are lucky to have her here as part of the Davin family!”

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses® was established in 1999 by members of the family of Patrick Barnes. He was 33 years old and died of complications of the auto-immune disease ITP. Like many families who go through this kind of horrific loss, the Barnes family wanted to do something positive to honor the very special man Patrick was. Pat’s family created The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses. What started out as a thank you from their family to nurses has grown into a meaningful recognition program embraced by healthcare organizations around the world. We are very proud to partner with the DAISY Foundation as we have extraordinary nurses here at Davin Healthcare.
As with the previous couple of years, Davin Healthcare took precautions and celebrated Jessica virtually.
DAISY Nomination Letter:
Jessica exemplifies the nursing profession and Davin CARES model through her Compassion for her patients, being an Asset to this organization for 7 years, her Resilience and Reliability especially during the pandemic, Expertise in her work, and Supportive team player on the units. Another reason for nominating Jessica for this award is her dedication to higher education and completing her Master’s in Nursing this May all while working full time.
Jessica worked at 5 different hospitals during her time at Davin Healthcare and every nurse manager she worked for gave the highest marks in their evaluations, exceeding expectations in the areas of Patient & Family Focus, Ethics, Accountability, Teamwork, and Adaptability. Last July, she received a Certificate of Achievement from Davin Healthcare for her “continued excellent work” and perfect evaluation at Nathan Littauer Hospital.
Jessica is an excellent nurse that we are proud to have representing Davin Healthcare in our community. Even though I don’t know her on a personal level, I admire her strength and commitment to nursing.
