Orchid Award

The Orchid Nursing Award

The Orchid Award honors nurses who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a significant impact on their patients.

The purpose of the Orchid Award is to recognize a nurse for outstanding professional achievement and who exhibits exceptional compassion and commitment to patients, colleagues, and the nursing profession. We like to celebrate the nurses who are not just excellent at what they do, but who have really made a difference within the Alliance HealthCare System. Honorees are chosen based on nominations from patients and colleagues.

The name of the Orchid Award was chosen due to the orchid being the most highly coveted of ornamental plants. Orchids are delicate, exotic, and graceful. The flower represents love, luxury, beauty, and strength. In Chinese medicine, orchids are believed to have healing and disease fighting properties.
