Health Equity

Health Equity is a priority at Shore
Consistent with our Mission to respect all patients, their families and each other, we desire to ensure equity of care for all we serve. Shore strives to create diversity, equity and inclusion for all patients, visitors, and staff.

Shore knows that all Healthcare is personal and private. It is also of the highest quality and safest when provided with universal respect for all those that enter our doors and by doing our very best to understand each person's diversity.

We abide by the New Jersey requirement for the collection of patient demographic data at the time of registration. This information helps us identify areas of opportunity so we can prevent any potential disparities of clinical or service care outcomes for our valued diverse patient population. As such, we ask that you review and respond to the four questions about Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity upon registering.  We honor your choice to "decline to answer," and we will respond to your questions.  
Our goal is to treat you in the manner in which you desire to be acknowledged and treated.

Thank you for trusting your care to Shore.
