For consistently delivering outstanding, patient-centered service and embodying Shore Medical Center’s Mission, Vision and Values, Shore is proud to announce that Lead Radiology File Room Coordinator Theresa Pataky has been named the medical center’s October 2013 Employee of the Month.
Pataky joined Shore in January of 1989 and has developed a reputation as detail oriented, accommodating to others and the consummate team player. Derek Suragh, PhD, MBA, administrative director of Shore’s Radiology Department, said she has earned the respect of her peers with her tireless work ethic.
“Theresa is wonderful with patients and always looks to find a solution to any complaint or concern,” said Suragh. “She often takes on extra work while handling the day-to-day operations of the file room and willingly lends a helping hand to patients and fellow employees. She is considered a friend and confidant to many outside her department.”
Pataky lives in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, with her husband Paul. They have two children and three grandchildren. She said she appreciates the friendships she has made during her time at Shore and she takes great pride in helping to care for the community.
“Working at Shore and meeting new patients every day has been extremely rewarding to me,” said Pataky. “I work with such a great team and am humbled to be recognized by them. It’s a privilege to work with such wonderful people.”
