Guardian Angel

Shore Medical Center and a number of grateful patients honored more than 60 nurses, physicians and caregivers for their compassion and commitment to quality care during Shore’s annual Guardian Angel Pinning Ceremony on Thursday, December 6, 2012. This year’s ceremony was the largest in the Guardian Angel program’s six year history.

Foundation Chief Development Officer Tom Mundell presented caregivers with special Guardian Angel pins to wear in honor of their exceptional service. The Foundation’s Guardian Angel Program began in 2007, and provides patients, their families, friends or coworkers an easy way to pay tribute to their caregiver, while at the same time supporting Shore’s mission to provide the best patient-centered care in the region.
