A Round of Applause

At Ivinson we strive to create an environment that allows staff to do their best work. Every month team members continue to reach new heights and their accomplishments deserve a round of applause.

DAISY Award Recipient

Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal proud­ly par­tic­i­pates in the DAISY Award Pro­gram, rec­og­niz­ing nurs­es who demon­strate extra­or­di­nary com­pas­sion and skill in the care of their patients.

Last month, Valerie Joyce, an RN on Ivinson’s Med/​Surg unit, was award­ed the DAISY Award. She was nom­i­nat­ed by a fel­low nurse that became a patient on Val’s unit. Val was rec­og­nized going the extra mile to not only care for her patients phys­i­cal­ly, but also emo­tion­al­ly when many patients are feel­ing most vulnerable.

Val was cel­e­brat­ed with a DAISY Award cer­e­mo­ny and cel­e­bra­to­ry cin­na­mon rolls. The DAISY ban­ner will hang on the Med/​Surg unit for the remain­der of the quarter.

Con­grat­u­la­tions, Val! Ivin­son is hon­ored to have nurs­es like you on our team.

Going for Gold

Diana Rois­ing in Admin­is­tra­tion, com­pet­ed in the Wyoming Win­ter Senior Olympics at the Snowy Range Ski Area last month. She came home with gold in her age group for women’s nordic ski­ing. My goal was to par­tic­i­pate and fin­ish the race as a role mod­el for my teenage grand­kids,” said Diana. Which I did, so mis­sion accomplished!”
