University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation recently named several members of the medical and nursing staff at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton, as Everyday Heroes. The team members nominated included Khalid Kurtom, MD, FAANS, neurosurgeon at Chesapeake Neurological Surgery, Walid Kamsheh, MD, neurologist at Shore Neurology and Sleep Medicine, and John Mulflur, MD, anesthesiologist, as well as multiple members of the nursing team from the Surgical Department, Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit and Radiology team members at the Medical Center.
The Foundation’s newest Everyday Heroes were nominated by Brenda Davidson, and her husband, Jim, for the care that she received at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton while being treated for a brain tumor. In her request to recognize all of the heroes, Davidson shared, “It is my belief that we are all here to use our talents and gifts to make this world a better place, and the people you have at our hospital are doing just that.”
The Everyday Hero Program provides patients and their family members an opportunity to thank a University of Maryland Shore Regional Health physician, employee or volunteer by making a financial donation to the UM Memorial Hospital Foundation in their name.
