Each year, thousands of people in our area vote for their choice of the best businesses and organizations of our region in the "Best of Blue Ridge Community Choice Awards." 

Pardee Hospital Foundation is honored to have been chosen as a Finalist in the Nonprofit Category of this year's awards!

Thank you for voting for us and for your support of the Foundation.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to this year’s five Women of Hope — Dawn Brown, Leah Gordon, Illeta Silvia, Sydney Bailey, and Angela Evans — for sharing their courageous journeys at our virtual Women Helping Women event last Friday, October 16. Each of these women’s stories was truly inspirational and encouraged all of us to “Hope Beyond.”

In addition, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended, donated to, and sponsored this year’s event, and to our host, Flat Rock Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Lisa K. Bryant.

Because of the overwhelming response we received from viewers, we’re offering the chance to watch the event for a limited time. If you weren’t able to join us last Friday, or you want to be inspired all over again, simply click the link below.

If you haven’t yet, please consider making a donation to Women Helping Women. Your contribution goes to provide a network of emotional support and hope to women in our community who are navigating health crises. Thank you!

The Women’s Golf Association of the Hendersonville Country Club raised over $5,000 on August 11 for Women Helping Women at their annual 18 Hole Step Aside Scramble. This year’s fundraising event was not club wide due to COVID-19, but nevertheless garnered strong support by the Golf and Tennis Tournaments and members of the Country Club.

Women Helping Women will use the proceeds from this and other donations to provide assistance and support to women in need, including the purchase of a Mobile Mammography Van. The van will be used to bring testing, diagnoses, and consultation to women at their homes, places of work, churches and community centers.


Women Helping Women was started in 1998 as a way to offer financial and emotional support to women facing various medical conditions. To date, the program has raised over $2 million for financial assistance to un- and under-insured women, as well as funding equipment, facilities, and services for women at Pardee Hospital.

Words from the new Executive Director, Myles Fish:

Have we ever been more aware of our healthcare systems than we are right now? I don't think I have. I think I have been guilty of taking healthcare for granted - so long as I was not feeling ill. Covid-19 has changed that.

In new and dramatic ways, we have come to understand that everyone's health could potentially impact the health of an entire community. It was this realization that caused me to look at and then apply for the Executive Director position at the Pardee Hospital Foundation. I was surprised at what I found.
