OSF HealthCare Saint Clare Medical Center is pleased to recognize the 2022 Sunflower Award Winner, Julie Foster of Buda. Julie is an Environmental Services tech at OSF Saint Clare. Julie was nominated for the Sunflower Award by a fellow Mission Partner who witnessed her kindness and compassion toward patients.
Julie is always going above and beyond for the admitted patients and her fellow Mission Partners. She interacts with patients and the nursing team, bringing patients the things they need. In addition to providing warm blankets and pitchers of ice, she works hard alongside the care team to ensure each patient has what they need from Environmental Services.
“Outstanding nursing care is recognized through the DAISY Award, but there are Mission Partners, like Julie, who are not nurses providing extraordinary care. It’s awesome to be able to recognize her with the Sunflower award, she is truly deserving of the honor,” said Scott Hartman, vice president of Support Services.
Recipients for the Sunflower Award are nominated by patients, the families of patients or employees throughout the past year. From the nominations, a committee at OSF Saint Clare selects one recipient annually. The Sunflower Award winner receives an award pin, certificate, sculpture, embroidered tote bag, bouquet of sunflowers and a banner displayed in their department for the year.
