Senior vice president and chief nursing officer,
Over the past couple of years, Daniel played a key role in developing an in-house, nurse-led logistics and transfer center that improved patient flow across the Baptist system. Previously, this work had been outsourced. She’s also had considerable impact on Baptist’s efforts to improve quality and safety, which helped the health system earn an A rating on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade report. She leads several other quality efforts, including one aimed at improving left-without-being-seen rates in the emergency department. Daniel chaired the health system’s COVID-19 vaccination administrative team and helped set up the first drive-through vaccination site in Jacksonville, Fla.
