Landers bestowed DAISY Award for nursing

SUBLETTE COUNTY – Molly Landers was recently honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. That award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s programs to recognize nurses.

Landers is currently the trauma program manager for both Pinedale and Marbleton clinics. Multiple submissions nominating her noted her passion for patients and ability to “tackle anything that walks in the door.” She was recognized for being a life-long learner, earning certification in cardiac life support, pediatric life support, burn life support and an emergency nursing pediatrics course. One nomination form submitted by a veteran still suffering from the effects of Agent Orange praised Landers’ compassion and commitment to fight for his care.

“Molly is so caring and down to earth, she immediately puts you at ease,” one nomination said.

Coworkers, including front desk staff and EMS, nominated her for her kindness, willingness to answer questions and commitment to patients.

“Molly is amazing. She’s exceptionally hardworking, learns quickly and has attention for detail,” Sublette County Hospital District Director of Nursing Vicky Marshall said. “She started with me in the ER with a trial by fire and she hasn’t looked back.

Hospital district administrator Dave Doorn said, “Molly is a valuable member of our team and is very deserving of this award. She makes a positive impact on the lives of her patients and her coworkers.”

Landers now joins a list of DAISY Award winners from Sublette County including Amanda Maxam, Amy Deeds, Julie Woolwine, Leslie Hagenstein, Katie Hoffman, Vicky Marshall and the Public Health nurses – who received the award last year for their work during the pandemic.
