Ascension St. Joseph Hospital Recognizes Extraordinary Nurse

TAWAS CITY, MI – Ascension St. Joseph Hospital recently honored Brandi Hurlburt, RN, with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses®. The award recognizes the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care that she provides to patients and families every day.

Hurlburt is a labor and delivery nurse at Ascension St. Joseph Hospital. She was nominated by first time parents who recognized her for always taking time, prior to the birth of their first child, to answer their questions and put them at ease. Following the birth, Hurlburt frequently checked in with the parents to make sure they were doing okay, and if they had any questions or concerns.

“Brandi is a compassionate nurse who supports all women and their families during their childbirth experience,” said Rose Goick Saddler, Administrator, Ascension St. Joseph Hospital. “Nurses, like Brandi, are heroes every day, and the work they do has meaning and value in all our lives. Brandi’s dedication to excellent care is what makes her an extraordinary nurse at Ascension St. Joseph Hospital.”

DAISY Award® recipients are chosen by a committee at Ascension St. Joseph Hospital. Nurses may be nominated by patients, families or colleagues. For more information, visit
