Mary Mansfield recently recognized Amanda Coate, RN, staff nurse on telemetry unit at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton as an “Everyday Hero” by making a contribution to UM Memorial Hospital Foundation in Coate’s honor. Mansfield’s gift was given in recognition for the loving, compassionate care Coate administered to her husband, Joseph Mansfield, when he was in the hospital this past spring.

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 the Memorial Hospital 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.
