Swedish Medical Center Honors Nurses with Third Quarter DAISY Awards

Cheryl Tucker, RN, Connie Bohn, RN, Asalia Carrazco, RN, recognized for providing extraordinary
nursing care.

Englewood, CO, November 10, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Nurses at HCA/HealthONE's Swedish Medical
Center are being honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the
DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the compassionate efforts nurses perform every day. Swedish
Medical Center nurses Cheryl Tucker, RN, Connie Bohn, RN, and Asalia Carrazco, RN have all been
recognized for this prestigious award for 2018.

Cheryl Tucker, RN, a dedicated nurse on the labor and delivery unit was nominated by a patient after
delivering her first child. “I'm nominating Cheryl for the DAISY Award because she made my labor and
delivery experience at Swedish Hospital not only memorable, but truly incredible. Cheryl felt like family
and was my motivation and encouragement. I couldn't have done it without her.”

Connie Bohn, RN, a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Swedish was nominated by the parents
of a NICU baby. “Connie not only guarded our child's heart and being during this time, but she guarded
ours. She really gave us the peace of mind to know everything really was going to be ok.”

Asalia Carrazco, RN, received a heartfelt nomination from another nurse who observed Asalia working
with a patient. “She said that Asalia paid attention to details and gave her such exceptional care. She said
she felt safe and loved because of the care Asalia gave her.”

“To be recognized as a DAISY award winner is truly incredible,” said Ryan Thornton, Chief Nursing
Officer at Swedish Medical Center. “Each of these nurses demonstrates compassionate care every day
and I am so proud to celebrate their hard work.”

Nurses may be nominated by patients, families, and colleagues, and they are chosen by a committee of
nurses at Swedish Medical Center to receive The DAISY Award. Awards are given quarterly at
presentations in front of the nurse's colleagues, physicians, patients, and visitors. Each Honoree receives a
certificate commending her or him for being an "Extraordinary Nurse." The certificate reads: "In deep
appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of
so many people." The Honoree will also be given a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called A Healer's
Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.

Additionally, DAISY offers J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice
Projects, The DAISY Faculty Award to honor inspiring faculty members in schools and colleges of
nursing, and The DAISY in Training Award for nursing students. More information is available at
