Congratulations to Physical Therapist Joe Farrell who has been chosen as the Shore Medical Center Guardian Angel of the month for November. He has been a member of Shore Medical Center since 2019.

“Joe is a true team player,” said Pesce. “He is always willing to cover other areas and shifts as needed. He is respectful as well as dependable.” Described as calm, consistent and helpful, Pesce said of Joe Farrell, “Joe is adaptable, pleasant and knowledgeable, he is also a proactive thinker. He is a welcome addition to our Outpatient PT team, working with high school athletes, engaging them in their recovery and preparing them to return to playing.” Pesce added, “It is quite interesting, while Joe is working with recovering Covid patients and his sister is working with pharmaceuticals to develop treatments and medications for Covid patients.”
A patient Joe Farrell worked with said, “Joe is incredibly knowledgeable as a therapist. He educates the patient, he is extremely compassionate, kind and truly has an understanding of each patient’s needs. I know Joe will continue to shine in his career because of these defined attributes.”
