Shore Medical Center Names ICU Nurse Jeff McKnight its February Guardian Angel of the Month

February 01, 2019

Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize Jeff McKnight, RN, as its February Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore’s patients. The Guardian Angel Program was established to enable members of the community to say thank you to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center.

McKnight came to Shore in 2014 from a Philadelphia hospital, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge in critical care medicine. Luanne McGroarty, BSN, RN-BC, ICU and telemetry nurse manager, says Jeff is known for his caring and kind nature, and for being a team player.

“Jeff takes great pride in his role as RN, and he conveys that passion to all of the patients in his care, and their families,” says McGroarty. “We’re very proud to have him on our team.”

Recently the wife of a patient McKnight assisted made a Guardian Angel donation in his honor, saying:

“Jeff never left my side during the hardest time of my Life. He gave me the hugs I needed as I cried on his shoulder. I will never forget how he helped me get through the saddest time in my life.”

McKnight lives in Northfield with his wife, Jill, and their three daughters, Madison, Finley and Samantha. He’s a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, and is currently pursuing his Master’s in Business Administration.

The Guardian Angel program recognizes anyone who works at Shore Medical Center and makes an impact and difference in your care or experience. 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 Planned Giving and Development Department at 609-653-3800.
