SOMERS POINT — Shore Medical Center has named Gina Sanguinetti, a respiratory care practitioner, its February Guardian Angel of the Month. 

According to a press release from Shore, Sanguinetti has been working with the Respiratory Care Services at Shore since 1997. 

Sylvia Buzzi, director of respiratory care services, described Sanguinetti as a kind, caring individual.

“Gina always goes out of her way to help all in the organization and provides the utmost care to the patients while being conscious about their safety,” she said.

The wife of one of Sanguinetti’s patients said her cheerful manner and detailed explanation of the respiratory procedures had a huge impact on her husband’s care.

Sanguinetti, of North Wildwood, has four grown children and eight grandchildren, with two more on the way. She enjoys being active, going to the gym, spending time with her dog, Molly, and visiting with her children and grandchildren.

The Guardian Angel program recognizes employees who makes a difference in patients' care. To recognize someone as a Guardian Angel call the Shore Medical Center Foundation at 609-653-3800 or see GiveToShore.org.
