Pardee Hospital changes logo to reflect partnership with UNC Health Care

  Pardee Hospital has changed their logo to reflect the importance of their partnership with the University of North Carolina Health Care System. “For six decades Pardee Hospital has been providing high-quality health care to our region. Our affiliation with UNC Health Care makes Pardee clinically and financially stronger. Our quality standards have already attracted some of the best doctors to this area. By joining the UNC Heath Care family of hospitals, we gain the expertise, knowledge and resources that come with partnering with one of the highest-rated health care networks in the United States,” said Bill Moyer, Chairman of the Pardee Hospital Board of Directors. Pardee’s partnership with UNC Health Care has brought insight, cost-savings, and made Pardee a better hospital. While, UNC Health Care has not purchased Pardee, Pardee has committed to a ten year management partnership. This partnership is so significant that Pardee has added it to their name. “UNC Health Care and Pardee Hospital have parallel missions that support the communities we serve. Our organizations have also been recognized for providing excellent care and service to our patients. The partnership and commitment between UNC Health Care and Pardee is a milestone for both organizations. We are proud to have Pardee Hospital in the UNC Health Care network,” said Gary L. Park, President, UNC Hospitals.

Pardee Hospital designated as the only Stroke Capable Hospital in Henderson County

Pardee Hospital has been designated as the first and only Stroke Capable Hospital in Henderson County by the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services. Early stroke treatment may decrease the amount of permanent damage to brain cells, decreasing the amount of disability. This special designation is only granted to hospitals that meet specific, enhanced care capability requirements related to the effective treatment of stroke patients 24 hours a day. “All of us at Pardee Hospital are pleased to receive Emergency Medical Services recognition as Henderson County's only Stroke Capable Hospital. This designation is reserved for hospitals that have committed the resources and demonstrate a willingness to aggressively treat victims of acute stroke. The critical factor in preventing death or severe disability for stroke victims is the time it takes from when the first symptoms are recognized, until the patient is diagnosed and treated. This designation as a Stroke Capable Hospital means that patients with symptoms of an acute stroke that require emergency medical intervention, can be brought to Pardee Hospital and will not have to be transported by paramedics out of this county. During my career as an emergency physician, I have personally treated and seen the disability sparing results of rapid, aggressive stroke management. Organizations that make this commitment save lives and change lives in their community,” said Robert Kiskaddon, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Pardee Hospital.
