On Friday, May 24, donors dedicated Infusion Bays in the Pardee Cancer Center. Mrs. Diana Hoffman, accompanied by her daughter, Stephanie and her son, Evan dedicated Infusion Bay #7 to her late husband, Bill. “Bill received wonderful treatment at Pardee,” said Diana, “While we wanted a different outcome, we as a family are proud to dedicate this room in his memory, knowing our support will help other patients receive the same compassionate care.”

Joseph celebrated 30 years in business in November 2016 with his landmark retail store, Joseph Laughter Clothier, well known among the savvy male (and female) shopper in Henderson County and beyond. Partner Scott of Scott Keels Designs is an accomplished designer having worked with many residents and businesses in the community for over 20 years.

Workers are racing to finish the $30 million Health Sciences Center in time for the arrival of Blue Ridge Community College students in less than five weeks.

“I’ve never seen a project that had such an army of workers on it around the clock,” Dr. Bill Medina, the chairman of the Pardee Hospital Board of Directors, said during the regular board meeting on Wednesday.

Medina drove by around 6 o’clock Tuesday evening and saw construction workers working inside and out. “I drove by again about 10 till 11 and they had a big spotlight and a smaller army of people still working on the concrete steps.”
