Chris Tilson, RN, Medical/Surgical Unit, received the DAISY Award. Ms. Tilson’s nomination was submitted by a patient and read in part: “Chris works so hard in getting things done for me. When I needed something it was more like asking a friend instead of a nurse. I feel like sometimes people are afraid to get close to their patient. She always has a smile on her face. I enjoy talking to Chris a lot. She made me work harder to get better. I will say next to my daughter, Chris is the best nurse. If I’m sick and had to be put in the hospital I would want to be at OSF Saint Anthony’s with her as my nurse.”

The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award) is a recognition program that honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. More information on the DAISY Award can be found by visiting
