Celebrating the spirit of volunteerism was the reason for more than 120 people gathering Oct. 17 at Greate Bay Country Club for the annual Shore Medical Center Volunteer Recognition Event.
Shore Medical Center’s Vice President of Human Resources, Alan Beatty, welcomed the volunteers to the event that was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Somers Point. He and Shore’s Director of the Volunteer Program, Lisa DiTrioa, also thanked the volunteers for their dedication to the hospital and the community.
The Shore Medical Center volunteers logged more than 55,000 hours over the past 12 months working alongside friends, providing helping hands and friendly smiles each and every day they worked. In keeping with the Shore Medical Center values, the volunteers put patients and families first.
Several special awards were presented to volunteers who embodied the values at Shore Medical Center to provide quality care for patients and their families in a safe and compassionate environment.
David Beyel, Shore Memorial Health System Board Chairman, presented volunteer Ethel Van Doren with the Chairman’s Award.
The Rotary Club of Somers Point President Joe Masington presented Stephanie Carracillo with the Rotary “Service Above Self” Award.
