In addition to Pardee Hospital's acute care beds, we also have a range of Health Services offered to the community. These include a Rehab & Wellness Center, Health Education Center and Urgent Care.


Pardee Hospital not only offers compassionate care for the sick, injured and rehabilitating, but also provides wellness education and resources for the community-at-large. Our wellness and prevention community outreach services are as notable as our hi-tech diagnostic and treatment capabilities.

Pardee Hospital History

The origins of Pardee Hospital began at Patton Memorial Hospital on Highland Avenue in Hendersonville. Patton Hospital opened in 1913 with a capacity for 26 patients and staffed by five physicians.

On November 15, 1953, patients were moved to the newly-constructed Margaret R. Pardee Memorial Hospital from Patton Hospital. The number of physicians on the medical staff grew to 26 physicians and four dentists in order to keep up with the new hospital's 70-bed capacity.

Today, Pardee Hospital is licensed for 222 acute care beds and has 238 physicians and specialists on the medical staff. A total of 175 physicians hold full admitting privileges and 40 medical specialties are represented through our medical staff. Pardee provides health care to all who seek it without regard for their ability to pay for services. With 1,200 employees, Pardee is the second largest employer in Henderson County.

Pardee Hospital is a not-for-profit community hospital. The hospital is owned but not funded by Henderson County. The Pardee Hospital Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization that serves as the charitable gift-receiving entity for Henderson County Hospital Corporation (dba Pardee Hospital).
