Pardee Hospital Foundation held a re-dedication ceremony for the Orthopedic Center of Excellence on June 9. This comes after a renovation of the center that began in February of 2010. The re-dedication is a testament to Pardee's dedication to the orthopedics program as it continues to grow and remains an important service for Henderson County and surrounding communities.
The re-dedication ceremony included speakers; Pardee Interim CEO, Jerry Maier, Edward G. Lily, III, M.D., and Amal Das, M.D. discussing the growth, renovation and future of the center. Pardee Hospital Foundation committed to fully fund the renovation. Pardee Hospital Auxiliary was recognized as the lead donor in this $700,000 project. Other special gifts were provided by First Citizens, TD Bank, Hendersonville Orthopedics Associates, Chester Phillips, James H. Cummings Foundation and the Cannon Foundation.
Pardee Hospital Foundation is celebrating 15 years of service to our community and Pardee Hospital this year. The foundation has raised over $25 million for Pardee.

Recently, the residents of Carolina Village got an ear-ful! A reception was hosted by RE and Rhoda Harmon, the guests were residents and friends from the community, and the topic was Pardee Hospital. The speaker was none other than the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert T. Kiskaddon, who has a flare for sharing his Scottish heritage. He educated the guests on all things quality, which Pardee and its patients value. Tell us when you have experienced quality in healthcare. We want to know!
