Kirby Bates Associates

Kirby Bates Associates (KBA) is a national firm specializing in nursing executive retained search, interim management, coaching and consulting services. KBA has been owned and operated by leading nurse entrepreneurs since its inception in 1988 and expanded its services in 2003 under the leadership of Karen Kirby, RN, MSN, NEA-BC, FACHE. Their ultimate goal is to help shape exceptional healthcare leadership teams that take the lead in ensuring safe, high quality patient care. Especially relevant to DAISY, KBA is truly committed to teams that create positive patient and family experiences and the best possible outcomes. We at DAISY are grateful for KBA’s first-hand understanding of the impact of meaningful recognition on organizational culture and teamwork. We were tremendously touched by their decision to support DAISY as a 2013 holiday gift to their clients and candidates. What a special way to demonstrate their gratitude to those who helped them throughout the year.
