Kortney Manning, September DAISY Award Winner

Congratulations Kortney Manning, our September 2017 DAISY Award recipient! Kortney lives in Peoria with her husband Ronnie and daughter Brylee. Kortney is a 2014 Methodist College graduate and has been with UnityPoint Health ever since. She recently became a nurse preceptor and helps mentor new nurses.

Kortney’s Nomination Story:

“Earlier this year I had a motorcycle accident. After surgery I went to 6 Crescent, where all of the nurses and staff were great – very nice and efficient. One particular nurse went above and beyond her expected duties. I work in grounds maintenance at ICC and love being outside. It was so hard to lay in that bed and only view the sunshine out the window. 9 days later I was able to be in a wheelchair. Kortney offered to take me outside for a ride. It seems like such a small thing, but at that moment it was exactly what I needed to get my mind headed in the right direction – healing! Thank you, Kortney!”


The Daisy Award is presented monthly to a nurse, nominated by patients or family members, for providing extraordinary care. The winner is chosen by peers, a group of staff nurses, who read all through the nominations received throughout the month. Nominate a nurse today!
