SOMERS POINT– Shore Medical Center is pleased to announce Luanne McGroarty, of Linwood, BSN, RN-BC, Nurse Manager for 5 Stainton, is the recipient Shore Medical Center’s 3rd Quarter Leadership Profile Award.
McGroarty joined Shore Medical Center in 1983 as a staff RN. After working in the Critical Care, Clinical Education and Med/Surg departments, she became a nurse manager in 2008. As manager, McGroarty has demonstrated an ability to build relationships and foster teamwork while encouraging innovation within her department.


In her leadership role, McGroarty has spearheaded several initiatives to improve patient care, including “transforming care at the bedside,” hourly rounding with junior volunteers, a patient and family liaison program, and a “get to know your caregiver” program that hangs pictures of staff for patients to see.
“Luanne is caring, supportive and encouraging to her staff on 5 Stainton, as well as to those outside of her department,” said Director of Volunteer Services Lisa DiTroia, who nominated McGroarty.
“I have been fortunate to have had excellent mentors who assisted me in my transition into a management role at Shore,” said McGroarty. She also thanked her staff for their willingness to try new initiatives.
McGroarty received her BSN from Wilkes College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She and her husband Joe have five children ages 14 through 26.
