We invite you to once again recognize your doctor and support your community’s health by honoring your favorite physician or physicians’ group. What a great way to say “THANK YOU” by making a tribute gift to Pardee Hospital Foundation to commemorate Doctors’ Day 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.
More than 322 physicians, representing 37 medical specialties and 127 allied health areas, call Pardee home. They are drawn to Pardee for its advanced technologies, high level of services and exceptional care in a small community environment. Your charitable gifts will be used to save lives by purchasing lifechanging medical equipment and funding programs that help Pardee Hospital continue to provide advanced compassionate care for you and your family, neighbors and friends.
Doctors’ Day was first observed on March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond suggested the date as it commemorated the first use of ether as a general anesthesia in surgery on March 30, 1842 by Dr. Crawford Long in Jefferson, Georgia so Dr. John Collins Warren could surgically remove a tumor from a patient’s neck. In 1990, the United States Senate and House of Representatives designated Doctors’ Day as a national holiday to be celebrated on March 30 each year.
Pardee Hospital is a not-for-profit locally supported hospital. Known to many as the county hospital, Pardee does not receive funding from the county or from tax revenue. With its affiliation with UNC Health Care, Pardee receives the benefit of advanced technologies and medical science, but does not receive any funding from the system. That’s why your support is so important.
When you make a tribute gift honoring your physician on Doctors’ Day, March 30, 2020, your doctor will receive a special tribute card from the Foundation that includes your name. Feel free to include a brief note on your pledge form, and we will be happy to share it with your doctor. Thank you for joining the grateful patients of our community and around the country by honoring your medical caregiver on Doctors’ Day. There is no deadline for this tribute – any day is a great day to say thank you!
