The nursing team on UM Shore Medical Center at Easton’s 3 East Med-Surg unit and Ramesh Kolli, MD, a hospitalist at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton, have been recognized as Every Day Heroes by Regina Grogan, who was under their care during her hospital stay in late May.

In the letter accompanying her gift to UM Memorial Hospital Foundation in their honor, Grogan complimented the nursing staff on being “responsive, helpful, efficient, kind and professional,” and note Dr. Kolli for “taking the time to listen” and making her feel as if she was his only patient.

The Everyday Hero program provides patients, visitors and staff members with the opportunity to recognize and thank any member or team at UM Shore Regional Health, who made a positive difference in a visit or stay, by making a financial contribution of any size to UM Memorial Hospital Foundation or UM Chester River Health Foundation. Funds received through the Everyday Hero program are used for equipment, capital improvements and staff education in the departments in which the employees or team work.
