Outstanding Achievements

NurseHenry Ford Hospital (HFH) recognizes nurses throughout the year who go above and beyond to impact the lives of others.

The DAISY Award is presented to one nurse each month who touched someone’s life with empathy and kindness. The Honey Bee Award is given every other month to honor nursing support staff who have provided extraordinary care.

Additionally, several Henry Ford nurses receive other awards and participate in presentations at various local state conferences. Lastly, many nurses continue their professional development by attaining professional certifications in a variety of specialties.

Although this year’s list is shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are very proud of all nurses for their dedication and commitment to serve our community during this unprecedented year.
