Beth Onnen, a nurse at Wesley Medical Center, exemplifies HCA Healthcare’s standards of integrity, compassion, respect and excellence each day. In the past, Beth has used her personal time to come to the hospital before and after her shifts to bring joy, comfort and support to her patients and their families. In 2019, Onnen received the DAISY Award in recognition of the indelible impact she made on a family as they welcomed the birth of a child, only to learn shortly thereafter of the mother’s cancer diagnosis, which unfortunately led to her passing. Beth offered support to this family in what was a very emotional time of mourning and loss – while at the same time helped celebrate new life with the birth of a child.
