Toronto, July 26, 2016 - Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre's (TC CCAC) care coordinator, Wendy Humphries was recently awarded the SickKids DAISY Award. The DAISY Award is an international program that recognizes and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. It is an award that recognizes individuals who demonstrate innovation, excellence, collaboration and integrity in their day-to-day work. Typically, this award is only given to a SickKids nurse, however, SickKids Transplant ward nominated TC CCAC's very own Wendy Humphries, instead.
Wendy's dedication goes hand-in-hand with TC CCAC One Client, One Team TM philosophy. One Client, One Team is a health system strategy designed to integrate care and programs. It aims to create one team as a means of improving experience, outcomes and cost, working together in new innovative ways, regardless of organization.
TC CCAC staff, including Wendy, have worked seamlessly with SickKids over many years, providing patients and clients with the best possible experience - it is a proof point that One Client, One Team is working.
We are honoured to have one of our own recognized for such a truly special award. Wendy and many more TC CCAC staff continue to work tirelessly to provide outstanding care for client's every day, embodying the values we live by.
