Jul 13, 2020
Hilton Head Regional Healthcare (HHRH) is pleased to celebrate Kevin Ashdown as Hilton Head Hospital’s most recent Daisy RN Award recipient. Ashdown was nominated for the award by former patients.

Kevin-Ashdown-200-x-300"It was quite an honor to receive the Daisy Award. Being recognized by staff and administration is a wonderful honor,” said Ashdown. “To be recognized and honored by patients I have cared for is even more special. Everything I do is for them. I know everyone that comes into the ER is having a bad day and my job is to mitigate that emergency and make them feel at ease and comfortable.”

Ashdown has been a member of the Hilton Head Island community since 1978. He attended Georgia Southern College and became a firefighter paramedic with Hilton Head Fire and Rescue after returning to the area. Ashdown earned his nursing degree in 2003 and has worked in the Emergency Department ever since.
