More than 90 people turned out for the Meet the CEO event at the Lake Pointe Landing retirement community in Hendersonville on Jan. 23 to hear Pardee Hospital CEO, Jay Kirby, discuss Pardee Hospital’s plans for continued success in the ever-changing health care climate.
Pardee Hospital Foundation board members and staff welcomed Lake Pointe Landing residents and shared complementary educational materials with attendees before and after Jay Kirby’s presentation.
Highlights of Kirby’s presentation included:
- Pardee Hospital’s latest accolade as the only hospital in North Carolina to receive ISO (International Organization for Standards) Certification for its top quality standards. Pardee is one of only 40 hospitals in the U.S. that has earned this distinction.
- Discussion of the community benefits Pardee provides – a payroll of $74 million, annual revenues of more than $132 million, $9 million in uncompensated care, $10.1 million in unreimbursed care, Henderson County’s largest employee giving campaign to United Way and more.
- An overview of the hospital’s recent community partnerships including the approved Mission Pardee Health Campus in Fletcher and the services Pardee provides through Blue Ridge Community Health Services to underserved patients in Henderson County.
Lake Pointe Landing graciously treated attendees to punch, wine and cheese during the event.
Kirby wrapped up his presentation with a question and answer session. Debbie Patrick, Pardee Foundation’s director of development and donor relations, and Lake Pointe Landing residents Dana Carpenter, a Pardee Hospital Auxiliary member and grateful patient, thanked the group for attending. Twenty attendees signed up for one of Pardee Foundation’s popular, by invitation only, Making Rounds tours before leaving.
Meet the CEO receptions are sponsored by Pardee Foundation’s Generations of Excellence Committee, chaired by Rich Cooke and Greg Burnette.
