Hospital unveils statue honoring efforts of nurses
Porterville Recorder

Every day as people enter the main doors of Sierra View Medical Center, they will be reminded of the caring and compassion of the hospital’s nurses. Monday morning, the hospital unveiled the DAISY sculpture which, said Jeff Hudson, chief nurse executive, “memorializes the commitment, dedication and compassion that is demonstrated each and every day.” The beautifully carved sculpture has been placed just outside the main entrance and is a replica of the smaller sculpture which will be given each quarter to a deserving nurse. The first DAISY award will be presented later this week.
