Nurses and physicians on the fourth floor Telemetry unit at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton were recently honored as Everyday Heroes by a grateful patient and his family. The unit was nominated by Jean and James Mason for the exceptional care and helpfulness provided by clinicians on the unit during James’ hospitalization at the end of April.

“Our gift is in appreciation of the care providers while we were in Shore Medical Center at Easton,” the Masons wrote in a letter sent with their gift to UM Memorial Hospital Foundation. “All of these staff members were so good to us during our visit.”

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.
