Hospital Employee is an Everyday Hero

Kevin Travers, an employee in the environmental services department at The Memorial Hospital at Easton, was recently acknowledged as an Everyday Hero.

The Memorial Hospital Foundation designed the Every Day Hero program to give patients and their families an opportunity to recognize exceptional care they have received from Shore Health System staff, physicians and volunteers by making a financial gift to the Foundation in their name.

The former patient who nominated Travers for the Everyday Hero award said, “So many times when we are motivated to make such a tribute, we nominate a doctor or nurse—and well they should be recognized—and we forget the person who cleans our room, or takes care of the tasks that get little or no recognition. Kevin was so friendly and nice that it lifted my spirits.”

Everyday Hero brochures and donation envelopes are available at Memorial Hospital and Shore Regional Cancer Center in Easton, Dorchester General Hospital in Cambridge and at Shore Health System outpatient centers around the Mid-Shore region. Checks or credit card gifts can be made in any amount and can recognize a specific person or a whole group. A donor’s tax-deductible gift can go the Memorial Hospital Foundation general fund or it can be designated for a specific service, such as cancer care or emergency services.
