OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois is pleased to announce the most recent winner of the DAISY Award, which recognizes outstanding nursing care. Winners are nominated by patients and their families.

The March 2019 Daisy Award was presented to Katherine Peel from Peoria. She works in the Pediatric ICU. Her nomination from the family member of a patient reads:

She was an amazing blessing bestowed upon our family at our greatest moment of need. We will be forever grateful for how she navigated us through this ordeal. We looked forward to each shift that we found she would return to us! 


The Daisy Award is a national endeavor that recognizes exemplary professional practice among nurses. OSF Saint Francis was the first hospital in the Midwest to participate in the program. Nurses who win receive a special pin and a bouquet of daisies.
