BEE Awards

If a member of our non-nursing staff stood out and made your stay with us particularly enjoyable, you can nominate them for the BEE Award.

The BEE Award for exceptional staff

The BEE award was established in 2016 by the nurses at Jewish Hospital to recognize the members of our staff that go Beyond Exceptional Expectations. The nursing staff wanted to show appreciation and acknowledgement of exceptional professionals within our organization. The BEE award is presented throughout the year to honor the extraordinary care provided by those that go above and beyond to make an impact outside their daily duties. The support of other care providers is the foundation upon which a patient’s healthcare team can maintain phenomenal care and advocacy. Just as the Daisy cannot survive without the Bee, the nurses cannot survive without the outstanding teamwork provided by other healthcare professionals.
