For consistently delivering outstanding, patient-centered service and embodying Shore Medical Center’s Mission, Vision and Values, Shore is proud to announce that Senior Clerk Michael Smith has been named the medical center’s November 2014 Employee of the Month.

Smith joined Shore in April of 1976 as a clerk in the storeroom.  In his long service to Shore, he has also worked as an advanced clerk, receiver and supervisor before assuming his role as senior clerk.  A loyal, dedicated and hard-working employee, Smith has set a standard for excellence that serves as an example for his peers.

“Mike has always displayed a high degree of integrity and responsibility.  In my time, he has been committed to completing his assigned areas with every supply the Clinical staff needs to care for their patients, day in and day out,” said Materials Manager James Hurd, who nominated Smith for this award.  “With his vast experience and willingness to share it, Mike is counted on by his fellow Storeroom associates in any and all situations that may arise.”

Smith and his wife Debbie live in Somers Point.  He has three grown children and four grandchildren.

“All of these years I’ve worked with so many outstanding and caring people from throughout the hospital,” Smith said.  “It’s always rewarding to come to work and help care for our patients.  That’s why I show up every day.”
