Buffie Deliman

Ms. Deliman is an inspiration and role model to her fellow nurses at Inova Alexandria Hospital. Her mentorship and encouragement of younger nurses has influenced many to seek more training, education and leadership responsibilities. And, her genuine example and commitment to community volunteerism energizes her colleagues to do the same.

A recipient of the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, a global award recognizing nurses for their clinical and compassionate skills, Ms. Deliman is quick to express gratitude and help others set and achieve high standards in healthcare. Recently, she was instrumental in assisting a colleague to establish the TULIP Award to honor medical technicians for outstanding leadership and patient care.
