For Immediate Release July 08, 2016

Talbot County resident Mary Mansfield recently recognized Amanda Coate, RN, staff nurse 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 recognized 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 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.
