For 2012, the honoree with the longest employment with Shore Health was Lillian Kewer, who celebrated 45 years of service to the organization. Kewer arrived at Memorial Hospital at Easton (MHE) in 1968 to take a job as a nurses’ aide. She was later promoted to senior aide, and stayed in that position until she became unit secretary in the Intensive Care Unit, where she now works part-time. “It’s just been a joy to work at Memorial Hospital,” Kewer comments. “In the early years, I worked just about everywhere with all kinds of patients. I can remember when men and women patients were on different halls in the old part of the hospital.” She adds, “The keys to success in health care are one, you have to love the work and really want to help people, and two, you have to be willing to work when and where you are needed.”

Says Cynthia Beemer, MSN, CCRN, NEA-BC, manager of MHE’s ICU, “I have never questioned Lillian’s commitment to Shore Health System nor her dedication to the Intensive Care Unit, which she considers part of her ‘family.’  She has truly been an asset to Shore Health System for 45 years of dedicated service.”

Lillian Kewer, unit secretary in the Intensive Care Unit at Memorial Hospital, was among the 301 employees recently honored for their service to Shore Health. Kewer has worked for the hospital for 45 years.
