Physician of the Year Award


Each year, Pardee Hospital Foundation gives the Physician of the Year Award to a Pardee physician who has demonstrated medical excellence, dedication to compassionate patient care, and a commitment to improving the lives of hundreds of people in our community. Any individual can submit a nomination form for the candidate he or she feels is deserving based on personal and career accomplishments. Current or former members of the Pardee Hospital medical staff will be considered.

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.
