Registered Nurse Tracey Ponzio Named Shore Medical Center’s November 2013 Guardian Angel of the Month

November 07, 2013

Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize Registered Nurse Tracey Ponzio as its November 2013 Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore’s patients.

The Guardian Angel Program was established to enable patients to say thank you to a special caregiver through a donation to Shore Medical Center.

Ponzio, of Manahawkin, NJ, joined Shore’s Maternal Child Health Unit in 2008. Maternal Child Health and Perinatology Nurse Manager Jeong Leon, MSN, MHA, RNC-OB, EFM-C, said Ponzio is an exceptional member of her team who always puts the needs of her patients first. She serves as a mentor and preceptor on the unit to new employees, as well as with the rest of her team.

“Tracey has been consistently commended by her peers and patients throughout her time in OB,” said Leon. “She models the heart of a Guardian Angel every day through her interactions with both coworkers and the families she cares for.”

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
