Methodist Sugar Land Hospital honors outstanding nurse with DAISY Award

DAISY Award Recipient, Gloria Wallace, RN, with her family and the DAISY Award Committee.

Gloria Wallace, RN, is Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s DAISY Award winner, a national honor that recognizes the contributions of extraordinary nurses.

Gloria was chosen for her extraordinary efforts in helping a family member find a patient. She has consistently demonstrated her ability to go beyond the standard of care for patients and their family members.

“Gloria’s sense of responsibility for her patients and family members extended far beyond the hospital’s walls,” said Janet Leatherwood, Chief Nursing Officer of Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “When she realized the family member was lost, she stepped up and did what she could to provide assistance. Her actions are a living example of the nursing unit’s motto, ‘Treat each patient and family as if they were your family.’”

In honor of her DAISY Award selection, Gloria received a certification of appreciation, a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful sculpture titled “A Healer’s Touch,” hand-carved by artists of the Shona tribe in Zimbabwe. Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s Nursing Administration group will select a DAISY Award winner each quarter.
