Pardee celebrates new partnership with Dr. Charles Albers and Dr. Michael Jones, opening of the Comprehensive Wound Healing Center

After 30 years of service to the Hendersonville community in private practice, Charles Albers, MD, FACS, and Michael Jones, MD, FACS will be leaving Carolina Surgeons, to launch a new Comprehensive Wound Healing Center at Pardee this October. “We are excited to be adding this vital service to the existing continuum of care,” says Dr. Albers, who will provide clinical leadership as the Center’s Medical Director.  “Not only will the new, enhanced wound care center complement the quality care already available at the hospital, but it also can serve as a key adjunct to the practices of our referring physicians—both of which will positively impact the health of our community.” The center, located at 800 North Justice Street in Hendersonville, is currently enhancing their existing wound care service through partnership with nationally known Diversified Clinical Services, a market leader in the clinical treatment of chronic wounds and the adjunctive use of state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).  Through this partnership, plans are in place to provide HBOT in early 2011, a treatment which quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and assists in the healing process of wounds. According to Dr. Jones, “Our community is ready for a comprehensive center for wound care and we are ready to provide it to them.” For more information on the center, please call (828) 696-4284.

Setting the Pace

Today is the official kickoff for United Way's 2010 campaign. The day began with a breakfast held at Blue Ridge Community College and will continue throughout the day as volunteers spread out through Henderson County to participate in the Day of Caring.
