Sterile Processing Staff and Perioperative Leadership Team Honored as Every Day Heroes

For immediate release: January 27, 2017

Jane Flowers, manager, Sterile Processing at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton, recently recognized her Sterile Processing team and Perioperative leadership team by donating to the University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation’s “Every Day Hero” Program to thank them for the support they gave to her while her friend was in the Emergency Department at UM SMC at Easton.

“The staff of Sterile Processing was great; while I continued to work through this event, my staff stepped up to the plate and excelled at what they do,” Flowers wrote in a letter to the Foundation accompanying her gift. “It was really a good feeling to know that not only my friend, as a patient was being cared for, but as the manager of Sterile Processing, I was also being supported.”

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 UM Memorial Hospital Foundation or the UM Chester River Health Foundation. Funds received through the Everyday Hero program are used for equipment, capital improvements and staff education for the departments in which the employees or team work.
