Sherry Remy is the Administrative Director, Emergency Department at Inspira Health Network in Vineland and has worn several caps at Inspira. Remy is directly responsible for two full-service emergency departments, one 24/7 pediatric emergency department, and one satellite emergency department as well as a clinical decision (observation) unit across two counties. The recipient also oversees patient care outcomes, patient experience ratings, financial operations, nursing professional development, community emergency management and response functions, and evidence-based continual performance improvement. Furthermore, Remy has designed and leads a project to reduce length of stay and expedite the care of patients with lower acuity needs.
The projects that Remy manages and runs require substantial collaboration between disciplines and units as well as uncompensated agreement from the individuals involved as well as education by all key stakeholders.  Remy also holds additional responsibilities for the organization’s pediatric emergency department operated in conjunction with specialty physicians from DuPont Children’s Health Services which serves emergently ill pediatric patients. The pediatric emergency department provides acute and sometimes lifesaving care to over 11,500 children and infants. Remy acted as a collaborator for this specialty unit to assist hundreds of emergently ill and/or medically fragile children.
“We could not do the work of the March of Dimes without the passion and commitment of our nurses,” said Allie Hall, Central Division Executive Director, New Jersey Chapter of the March of Dimes. “This is our opportunity to show them how special they truly are.”
