South Georgia Medical Center named Paula Browning, with Hospice of South Georgia and Langdale Hospice House, as the June DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses honoree. The award is part of the international DAISY Foundation, a program developed to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform everyday.

Browning was nominated by a patient’s relative who said: “After battling cancer for four years, my 7-year-old niece, Addison, was placed in hospice care. Mrs. Paula was her nurse. She showed Addison love and kindness and was her advocate for comfort. She knew Addison loved Icee’s and would bring them to her often. She ensured her pain was managed and always made herself available. She made Addison’s transition from here to heaven the best it could be. Mrs. Paula has a true heart for caring for others.”

Browning has been a hospice nurse for nine years.
