Dr. Kiskaddon shares the value of quality--and bagpipes

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!

Pardee Hospital Foundation - Heritage Society

The Pardee Hospital Foundation's Heritage Society consists of donors who have made cumulative lifetime gifts of $250,000 or more.  The donors have been honored and recognized with their names on display at Pardee Hospital in the hallway of the main lobby just outside the gift shop.  Below is a photo of the display.  We are thankful for the generosity of these loyal donors. The legacy of giving at Pardee Hospital began with an initial gift of $100,000 from the Ivor Pardee family.  We continue that legacy of giving through the Heritage Society of Pardee Hospital Foundation.

Don't you just love surprises?

A grand surprise was given to Myra Grant on Friday, Jan. 21.  Unbeknownst to her, a small reception was planned in her honor to celebrate both her 15thanniversary at Pardee and the 15thanniversary of the Foundation.  Myra has been the one and only Executive Director of our Foundation, leading the way for volunteers and the community to raise over $25 million for projects, services and facilities at Pardee Hospital.  A special cake with the Foundation’s anniversary logo was shared with employees, friends and former board members who came to celebrate the day.  An original of a special commissioned pen and ink drawing by Carolyn Serrano from 1994 was presented to Myra as commemoration of her years of service to Pardee. Congratulations to Myra and the Foundation on their 15th anniversary!
