SOMERS POINT — Shore Medical Center has chosen Security Director Lawrence Phillips as the recipient of its Leadership Profile Award.  

The award is presented quarterly to a manager for exemplary job performance and exhibiting characteristics most valued in leaders within the organization.

Phillips joined Shore in 2017 with 25 years’ experience working in safety and security, including many years working for hospital systems. As the security director, the Somers Point resident has an enormous responsibility in keeping patients, visitors, volunteers and employees safe — a responsibility he takes very seriously. 

Ron Johnson, Shore Medical Center president and CEO, presented Phillips with his award at a manager’s meeting Feb. 4. Johnson recognized Phillips’ integrity, work ethic and steadfast commitment to keeping everyone within the hospital safe. 

“Larry has earned our trust and admiration, not only because he makes himself available to all employees and does his job well, but because of his ability to respond well under stress and to manage a wide variety of situations simultaneously,” Johnson said. “Larry also helps our staff care for patients and their families with empathy and compassion, especially in the emergency department. He is always looking to make our organization safer and takes the initiative to educate staff and collaborate with outside resources to assist in protecting us all.”

Phillips and his wife, Diana, moved to Somers Point from central Pennsylvania and feel very fortunate to be part of this shore community. They enjoy spending time with their daughter, Alicia, and granddaughter Madison.
