BRIDGTON — Bridgton Hospital Director of Nursing Jill Rollins, RN, has been chosen as Central Maine Healthcare’s 2017 DAISY Nurse Leader Award recipient.

Rollins was presented with the award at a surprise ceremony.

Since 1999, the DAISY Foundation has recognized the compassion and skills of more than 75,000 nurses worldwide through the DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses. The nomination stories share the many levels of kindness, patience and patient-centered care nurses provide every day. 

The nomination process is similar to the regular DAISY Award with a call for nominations going out to staff and also adding any patients’ nominations of leaders to the “pool” of candidates. At Central Maine Healthcare, a committee of representatives from Central Maine Medical Center, Bridgton Hospital and Rumford Hospital review the nominations and vote for a winner.

During the nomination process, there were multiple stories nominating Rollins for the award. Each story highlighted her willingness to go above and beyond when it comes to caring for staff and patients.
