Employee Recognition

We hope that you have a positive experience at UF Health St. Johns. If you are inclined to recognize a team member, there are several ways to do so. The DAISY Award is a recognition that is specific to nurses, the Hibiscus Award is a recognition for all non-nurse team members, and the Grateful Patient program accepts monetary donations in honor of any physician or team member.


The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is part of The DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses make every day. Patients and visitors can nominate nurses for this honor, with the winner being determined quarterly by the DAISY Committee.

Please submit your DAISY Award nomination here.

Hibiscus Award

The Hibiscus Award honors non-nursing staff for their efforts in supporting the health care mission of UF Health St. Johns. Patients and visitors can nominate team members for this honor, with the winner being determined quarterly by the Hibiscus Committee.

Please submit your Hibiscus Award nomination here.

Grateful Patients Program

If you would like to recognize a DAISY Award winner, Hibiscus Award winner, or any other team member, you can do so through the Grateful Patient Program, which is a special way to say “thank you” to a doctor, nurse, technician, staff or volunteer team member and while also enhancing the experience of future UF Health St. Johns patients. When you make a donation of any size, you support our areas of greatest need and provide resources for equipment and programs that would not be possible otherwise.
