Honor a Nurse

Honor a Bronson Nurse


Celebrating extraordinary nurses

Nurses’ Week is celebrated each year in the beginning of May. This special week is a time to honor and celebrate nurses and the important role they play in healthcare. Thank you to our nurses. You are resilient. You are strong. You are compassionate. 

Give thanks

There are multiple ways you can honor our exceptional nurses. If you know a nurse who deserves recognition, share the story, nominate them for an award, or give a special monetary gift in their name.

Recognize a caregiver

The DAISY Award is supported by the not-for-profit DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation. Bonnie and J. Mark Barnes created this foundation and award as a way to remember their son, J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick had a disease that attacked his body, and he was in the hospital for a long time. His nurses did such a great job with him that the Barnes family created an award that continues to recognize the excellent work nurses do every day.

At Bronson, our mission is simple – together, we provide excellent healthcare. And we love hearing the stories about how our staff has gone above-and-beyond to provide you the best care possible.

We encourage you to nominate either your nurse, or an entire care team for the DAISY Award.

Honor Your Caregiver

Make a gift

Consider making a gift in honor of a nurse to support nursing scholarships, the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund or Bronson's Greatest Needs. Without sharing the gift amount, the honoree of your donation will be recognized for their commitment to outstanding patient care.

If you prefer another method, you can:

  • Call Bronson Health Foundation office at (269) 341-8100
  • Email us at healthfoundation@bronsonhg.org
  • You can mail your gift to Bronson Health Foundation, 301 John St, Box C, Kalamazoo, MI 49009

If you wish to honor a caregiver(s), we will send them a note to let them know of your sincere appreciation.
