The Great Falls VA Clinic celebrated this year's DAISY Award recipient on Wednesday.
Denise Weiler received the national nursing award while surrounded by family, friends, and colleagues.
A relative of a patient who receives care through the clinic nominated Weiler.
The DAISY award recognizes and thanks a nurse for outstanding performance during his or her duties.
"I'm just incredibly thankful to even be honored and I'm so glad that I'm making a difference and that's always been my goal, is to make a difference in someone's life," said Weiler.
The DAISY foundation is a non-profit organization formed by relatives of J. Patrick Barnes, who died in 1999 at the age of 33.
The award is given in memory of the care that Barnes and his family received while he was being treated for an auto-immune disease.
