SOMERS POINT — Each year, Shore Medical Center honors its staff during Hospital Week with a variety of events and offerings, but the most poignant of all is the annual Caregiver Recognition Dinner, which was held Tuesday, May 14, at Greate Bay Country Club. 

During the event, employees with milestone anniversaries were honored, as well as recipients of the annual Spirit of Shore Caregiver of the Year and Physician of the Year awards, the Chairman’s Awards for both clinical and nonclinical staff, and the DiOrio Award.

Shore President and CEO Ron Johnson presented the Caregiver of the Year Award to Access Management Registrar Deb Beall, of Egg Harbor Township, for her actions that exemplify the Planetree model of patient-centered care. Johnson then presented the Physician of the Year award to Critical Care Medicine physician Dr. Mario Christianto, of Cherry Hill, who “embodies everything in Shore’s mission of caring and respecting patients, their families and each other.”

Shore Medical Center board of trustees Chairman Robert Bray, DDS, presented the prestigious Chairman’s Award, which recognizes employees for their contributions and commitment to Shore in clinical and nonclinical areas. This year’s Chairman’s Award, Non-Clinical was presented to Janice Boehler, manager of patient financial billing, of Barnegat Township, and Chairman’s Award, Clinical, was presented to Jessica Mankow, nurse manager of the Advanced Spine and Orthopedic Institute, of Egg Harbor Township.  

Janet DiOrio Galante, daughter of the late Joseph DiOrio, presented the DiOrio Award to Fred Banner, chief information officer, of Marmora in Upper Township. The DiOrio Award was created in 2014 to honor the individual who best embodies the ideals set forth by Joseph DiOrio, who in his five decades as a member of Shore’s board of trustees established an outstanding track record of service and always put the patients’ best interest first. Banner, through his work both within the hospital and in the military veteran community, has proved to be a dedicated, honorable and loyal leader of strong character who has been an advocate for Shore Medical Center through their tireless passion to its mission, vision and values.
