Shore Medical Center is proud to announce that Kathryn “Kat” Shahinian has been selected as its Employee of the Month for July. A registrar in the Access Management Department, Shahinian began her career at Shore in April 2020.
Joining the registration team in the middle of the COVID pandemic proved to be very challenging; however, even when the going got tough, Kat always had the best attitude. Shahinian is always reliable, taking great care to set a good example for fellow employees, according to Mike Smith, Administrative Director of Revenue Cycle Operations.
“Kat’s work ethic is out of this world and she constantly wants to learn more about our Access Department’s responsibilities. She quickly learned the roles associated with supporting our Admissions Department, Same Day Surgery Registration and of course, our Outpatient Registration Department,” said Smith. “Becoming proficient in all of these access areas provides incredible support for her team members and most importantly, our patients.”
Smith went on to say, “One of the things that stands out is how Kat greets each and every one of our patients with a smile, often using her wit and sense of humor to make the patient feel a little more at ease. She has also shown great compassion by going above and beyond for a family who had just lost a loved one. Having Kat on the team makes a huge difference and her efforts at strengthening our culture have not gone unnoticed. The pride that Kat shows in her work in all areas is truly inspiring and she is an invaluable member of our team,” concluded Smith.
Shahinian resides in Somers Point.
