Shore Medical Center Guardian Angel

Maureen Deely

SOMERS POINT — Shore Medical Center has named Maureen Deely, program director of palliative care, its December Guardian Angel of the Month.

Deely, who lives in Sea Isle City, came to Shore Medical Center in 2001 as a staff nurse in the emergency department. She found her true calling as a certified hospice and palliative care nurse, providing assistance to the sickest patients and their loved ones at the most difficult time in their lives, according to a press release from the hospital.

Deely and her husband, Kevin, have seven children and 10 grandchildren. She enjoys traveling, her book club, volunteering and spending time with her family.

The Guardian Angel program was established to enable members of the community to say thank you to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center.
