Alta Bates Summit Caring for People Award
Please Join Us in Recognizing People That Make a Difference

Throughout Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, our nurses, physicians and ancillary staff make a difference for patients and their families by delivering compassionate care that puts patients at the center. With our not-for-profit mission, vision and values as a foundation, we continually seek ways to exceed expectations and bring remarkable, compassionate care to the people we treat.

Recognizing the power of teamwork is one of Sutter Health’s core values and we are pleased to announce the inception of a new employee recognition program that will recognize full and part-time nurses, physicians and employees for their performance, dedication and diligence in carrying out their duties and in advancing the goals and mission of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center.

Starting in April, Alta Bates Summit leadership will recognize and highlight the recipients of the Caring for People Award. Three separate awards for nurses (DAISY), physicians (Hummingbird) and ancillary staff (Butterfly) will be given to our staff members every month who are nominated by their peers and colleagues for going above and beyond their job duties to deliver exceptional service and patient care. The goal of this campaign is to highlight and recognize all of our staff members who live, breathe and express our Sutter Health values.

DAISY Award: Nurses Honored by the DAISY Foundation for Extraordinary, Compassionate and Skillful Care

Hummingbird Award: Recognizing Physicians Who Go Beyond Exceptional Expectations

Butterfly Award: Recognizing All Caregivers (non-nursing) Performing Exceptional Tasks and Affirming Lives

All three of these awards recognize nurses, physicians and employees who demonstrate compassion and kindness in their everyday work, practice at the highest level of clinical excellence, foster teamwork and uphold a high standard of care.

How Do I Nominate Someone for These Awards?
The nomination criteria starts with describing a story that demonstrates how a co-worker showed empathy, selflessness and took immediate action to improve the experience of our patients. Selection criteria is based on more than an employee doing the essential function of their job; it is going above and beyond the call of duty and being exemplary in their performance.

Employee Recognition Committee
A cross section of Alta Bates Summit managers and directors make up the employee recognition committee and they will evaluate nomination submissions and make award selections. Our team is very excited to recognize all the people who make a great impact at Alta Bates Summit and we encourage everyone to nominate colleagues who are deserving of these awards.

We know the overall success of Alta Bates Summit and our award winning care of our patients, rests in the hands of each of our employees. Thank you for everything you do.
