We invite you to once again recognize your doctor and support your community’s health by honoring your favorite physician or physicians’ group by making a tribute gift to Pardee Hospital Foundation to commemorate Doctors’ Day on March 30, 2020. Without you, the Foundation would not have been able to fund crucial enhancements that set Pardee apart and rank your community hospital among the highest rated hospitals in the United States, providing state-of-the-art medical care for the residents of Henderson County and the surrounding region.

Did you know that throwing old pills away in the trash or flushing them can pose a threat to children, pets, or the water supply? Keep your home and the environment safe by using disposable pill packets. You can pick up free safe disposable pill packets at Pardee Hospital Foundation at 561 Fleming Street. These are available only while supplies last, so come by and get yours today!

A new high-tech, isolated room at Pardee Cancer Center in Hendersonville has a big purpose: using computer programs (BD IV prep) to walk technicians through every step while preparing an I-V compound.  Check out the WLOS segment here.

 

Since Women Helping Women began in 1998, Pardee Foundation has honored women in our community, who have survived major health issues, with the distinction of “Women of Hope.”

This year Spiritual Care Week is October 20-26.

A Day in the Life of a Hospital Chaplain
The day begins with ICU rounds. I love being part of various inter-disciplinary rounds. We all look at patients through our own specialty’s lens. While others listen for lab values and medication changes, I’m tuned in to family issues, pending decisions, distress – helpful insights for visits later.
