Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize Linda Arreguin, RN, as its May 2018 Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore’s patients. The Guardian Angel Program was established to enable members of the community to say thank you to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center.
Arreguin came to Shore Medical Center in March of 2003, where she began her career with Shore on the 4 Whitby unit. In 2010, she transferred to the float team where she remains today.
Luanne McGroarty, nurse manager of ICU and Telemetry, says staff are extremely grateful when Arreguin is assigned to their floor.
“Linda has many qualities that make her a great nurse. She’s compassionate, empathetic, a patient advocate and a team player. Shore is fortunate to have her as a member of the organization,” says McGroarty.
Recently the wife of a patient Arreguin cared for made a Grateful Patient donation in her honor, and had this to say about her:
“Linda was so kind, caring and compassionate with my husband. She gave us her undivided attention and I will never forget the outstanding care she gave him.”
Arreguin resides in Egg Harbor Township with her husband and three young children. She is currently working toward her bachelor of nursing degree.
The Guardian Angel program recognizes anyone who works at Shore Medical Center and makes an impact and difference in your care. Guardian Angels are recognized amongst their peers and are presented with a special Guardian Angel pin at Shore Medical Center’s annual pinning ceremony. If you, a family member or friend would like to honor a Shore Medical Center Guardian Angel, please contact the Shore Medical Center Foundation at 609-653-3800 or www.GiveToShore.org.
