Pardee celebrates new partnership with Dr. Charles Albers and Dr. Michael Jones, opening of the Comprehensive Wound Healing Center

After 30 years of service to the Hendersonville community in private practice, Charles Albers, MD, FACS, and Michael Jones, MD, FACS will be leaving Carolina Surgeons, to launch a new Comprehensive Wound Healing Center at Pardee this October. “We are excited to be adding this vital service to the existing continuum of care,” says Dr. Albers, who will provide clinical leadership as the Center’s Medical Director.  “Not only will the new, enhanced wound care center complement the quality care already available at the hospital, but it also can serve as a key adjunct to the practices of our referring physicians—both of which will positively impact the health of our community.” The center, located at 800 North Justice Street in Hendersonville, is currently enhancing their existing wound care service through partnership with nationally known Diversified Clinical Services, a market leader in the clinical treatment of chronic wounds and the adjunctive use of state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).  Through this partnership, plans are in place to provide HBOT in early 2011, a treatment which quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and assists in the healing process of wounds. According to Dr. Jones, “Our community is ready for a comprehensive center for wound care and we are ready to provide it to them.” For more information on the center, please call (828) 696-4284.

A Neighborly Thing to Do

Color her world beautiful.  Whether tending the vibrant floral garden alongside her enclosed porch or opening the doors of her home for a casual, informational evening, Joan Martin spends her time making a difference in the world around her.  When a Pardee Foundation volunteer asked her to host an event she knew it could be a positive way to help the hospital. Being a cancer-survivor, she picked a program about cancer services including the nationally recognized Comprehensive Cancer Center located at the hospital.  She and husband Jerry invited friends from their Sugar Hollow neighborhood to gather for wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as to hear W. Mark McCollough, MD, with Mountain Radiation Oncology, speak about oncology research and the value of the Center of Excellence to the community. Joan believes that her neighbors are lucky to have Pardee nearby.  And the Foundation knows that it is fortunate to have the friendship of the Martins.  Thanks, Joan and Jerry, for the gracious hospitality and wonderful evening of sharing.  If you would like to host an event or give in other ways, please contact the Pardee Hospital Foundation at (828) 696-4666.
