Hospital Employee Receives Award from Somers Point Foundation for Education

March 10, 2009

Carol Rogers, director of patient financial services at Shore Memorial Hospital and local Somers Point resident, recently received the Somers Point Foundation for Education Award for Healthcare.

Each year, the Foundation for Education identifies four individuals in the categories of community, healthcare and education to receive this prestigious honor in recognition of their significant contributions to the Somers Point community and schools.

“It was a very humbling experience for me to be chosen for this award,” says Rogers. “I work with many talented individuals who I feel are equally deserving. I am very thankful for the people I work with each day who help me to help others.”

Rogers started her career at Shore Memorial in 1976 as a credit and collections representative. She served as credit and collections manager and assistant director of patient accounts before moving to her current position in 2008. A Somers Point resident for over 30 years, Rogers and her husband Vic have one daughter and five grandchildren.

The Foundation for Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving schools within Somers Point. Founded in 1995, the Foundation links people and organizations within the community with the public schools, promoting new educational programs and enhancing existing programs of the district.
