Santa made a stop at Pardee to visit with patients one evening before things got too busy at his workshop. Here are a few photos from his visit. You never know when he might stop by again!

The many decorations you see throughout the hospital come from the help of our wonderful volunteers. The Pardee Auxiliary volunteers decorate eleven trees each year. These trees are located at the main entrance, lobby, admitting, radiology, rehab, day surgery, the ICU waiting area, the Women & Children’s center, orthopedics, the ED and the Comprehensive Wound Center. The volunteers give additional time to decorate the trees each year.
In addition to the Pardee Auxiliary, the Land of Sky Garden Club sends volunteers to decorate behind the information desk in the main lobby, setting up trees next to the elevators on the ground floor and decorating the atrium on the way to radiology.
Many hours are donated to ensure Pardee is decorated and festive each year. We would like to take a moment and thank those who are a part of making this happen. We appreciate your time and hard work.
Pardee Hospital is hosting a blood drive on Wednesday, Dec. 15 from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in the Jamison Conference Room.

Pardee Lifeline has been providing the Lifeline service to Henderson County for over 27 years. The service is ideal for those with high-risk medical conditions, chronic illnesses or individuals with limited mobility. Lifeline offers other services as well, such as a speakerphone function allowing individuals to answer the telephone without using a handheld receiver and the ability to leave reminders of important things to do throughout the day.
“We are proud of the service we provide our elders, which helps them continue living in the homes they love,” says Ron Comeens, Lifeline coordinator for Pardee Hospital. “We are especially driven during this holiday season to help more at-risk elders remain independent, so that they can share in the festivities with their family and friends at home. Holidays should be a time for celebration, not worry.”
Lifeline recently launched the new AutoAlert button featuring the only pendant-style help button that can automatically call for help if a fall is detected and a senior is unable to push his or her help button. Operators are available to answer questions or provide assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Lifeline also retains pertinent health history and information on who to contact in the case of an emergency, when an individual is unable to provide this information.
Subscription to this service is available for a low monthly fee, based on the types of options selected.
