Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital (EMFLH) is pleased to recognize and honor one of its nurses for her extraordinary patient care.  McKenzie McElroy, a nurse in the Obstetrics Unit at EMFLH, was one of many nurses nominated for the DAISY Award.  A resident of Lincoln County, McKenzie has been caring for patients at EMFLH for one year.

She was nominated by a patient who said, “McKenzie was my nurse when I came in at 34 weeks in active preterm labor. It was a late night, she worked so hard to help stop my labor. She helped us with the transfer to Lexington when we saw my labor could not be stopped. She gave every effort in a timely manner to help. She was caring and worked tirelessly for hours. Her hard work helped save my baby from further complications.”

Ephraim McDowell is proud to recognize nurses with the DAISY Award, a national program that honors the compassionate care and clinical excellence that nurses bring to their patients every day.  Nomination forms for the DAISY Award are available at various locations throughout Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, Ephraim McDowell Fort Logan Hospital, Ephraim McDowell James B. Haggin Hospital and other Ephraim McDowell facilities.
