Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize speech therapist Misty Carpenter, SLP as its November 2014 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.
Carpenter joined Shore Medical Center in 2004 and soon after became the lead speech therapist in the Rehabilitation Department. She works with the radiology department in performing Modified Barium Swallow Testing and also treats inpatient and outpatient cases for many different diagnoses.
Jennifer Pesce, PT, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Shore Medical Center, says Carpenter is a true team player. “Misty consults with physicians, nurses and support staff at any time, including on days off and vacations. She has received many letters of accommodation from patients and coworkers praising her skills, manner and commitment to patient care,” Pesce says.
Carpenter lives in Egg Harbor Township with her husband Andrew and their three children. She and her husband are active members of numerous youth organizations, most notably Egg Harbor Township Lacrosse, where she is in charge of the concessions and her husband is a volunteer coach.
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 www.GiveToShore.org.
