BRIDGTON — Lea Tilton, an Intensive Care Unit nurse at Bridgton Hospital, has received awards for her commitment to high-quality care and compassion to her patients.

The Winnie R. Moore Clinical Nursing Award, established in 1986. Moore was the director of nursing at Bridgton Hospital for 29 years. The honor is presented by the medical team members to the top nurse and includes a silver Revere Bowl. It is awarded in recognition of clinical expertise, as well as successfully meeting the Central Maine Healthcare Service Standards.

Lea also received the coveted DAISY Award, an international distinction that recognizes nurses for going above-and-beyond providing compassionate care to patients and families. While recipients are typically nominated by patients or patients’ families, Lea is receiving this award because of the care she provided to one of her Bridgton team members who was enduring a complicated pregnancy.

“Lea is very deserving of both of these awards,” Stephany Jacques, interim president of Bridgton Hospital and Rumford Hospital, said. “These recognitions are given to those team members who go above and beyond in their care for our patients, and that certainly applies to Lea, who is an inspiration to all of us.”
