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 Orthopaedics Associates, Chester Phillips, James H. Cummings Foundation and the Cannon Foundation.
The 16th Annual Tournament of Champions took place on Monday, May 16, at Kenmure Country Club. The Tournament raised over $96,000 to be used to purchase a new state-of-the-art medication management system that safeguards the drugs and pharmaceutical orders our physicians place for patients at Pardee. This year’s event hosted a full field of 136 players for our traditional 18-hole event in the afternoon and also hosted 24 golfers for the second annual 9-hole tournament that took place in the morning. Over 40 volunteers ensured that the event ran smoothly. This event has raised more than $1.1 million since 1996 to support Pardee Hospital facilities, equipment and programs. Thank you to the many sponsors, volunteers, committee members, golfers, and staff who made the year’s Tournament of Champions such a great success.
