John Marr, RN, of Galloway Named Shore Medical Center’s July Employee of the Month

September 22, 2016

For consistently delivering outstanding patient-centered service and embodying Shore Medical Center’s Mission, Vision and Values, Shore is proud to announce that John Marr, RN, has been named the medical center’s July 2016 Employee of the Month.

Marr joined Shore Medical Center in 2010 as a nurse on the 5 Hayes unit, where he is recognized for creating a positive healing environment for patients, families and staff alike. He not only tends to the medical needs of his patients, but he also connects with them personally, helping to take their minds off of their condition.

“John’s ability to engage his patients and their families is second to none,” says 5 Hayes Nurse Manager Kelly Duma. “He has a natural way of making anyone he comes in contact with feel comfortable and at ease. He is always the first person to lend a helping hand.”

Before he graduated from Atlantic Cape Community College in 2010, Marr knew Shore was where he wanted to work thanks to a positive clinical rotation experience at the medical center. “I really loved the staff and felt very at home at Shore,” Marr says.

Marr lives in Galloway with his wife Vicki and daughters Hailey and Hannah. In his spare time, he enjoys photography. He is currently working toward his RN/BSN degree from Rutgers University.
