The Community Foundation of Henderson County
has awarded the Pardee Foundation
a grant of $3,900 to assist in the upcoming renovation of Pardee’s Orthopedic Center of Excellence
. Equipment provided by this grant will include additional platform steps and tub transfer chairs on which Joint Camp patients practice, joint prosthesis which are used as teaching tools, additional chairs for the patients’ coaches and mounted flat screen televisions for educational videos. This renovation project will not only provide better equipment for use by our medical staff, but also allow care for additional patients by adding five more patient rooms and an expanded physical therapy area. The Community Foundation of Henderson County supports charitable programs in the greater Henderson County area. It was founded in 1983 and administers over 390 funds with assets of over $65 million.
