(SOMERS POINT, NJ – August 11, 2017) – For consistently delivering outstanding patient-centered service and embodying Shore Medical Center’s Mission, Vision and Values, Shore is proud to announce that Laboratory Business Associate Victoria Gatto has been named the medical center’s July 2017 Employee of the Month.
Gatto has only been with Shore a little over a year, but during that short time she has proven to be a dedicated and skilled member of the team who approaches her work with excellence and compassion. While she does not have direct patient contact, her constant attention toward staff who do has made her an invaluable member of Shore’s Lab team.
She has become the resident expert on online competency development, and in the past year covered for the Pathology Office Secretary, conquering numerous projects and always asking what more she could do.
“I am honored and so thankful for all of my coworkers who have taught me so much here at Shore,” Gatto says.
A resident of Egg Harbor Township, Gatto enjoys spending time with her husband Scott and their family and friends, going to the beach and reading.
