It was another grand opportunity to visit Pardee through Pardee Hospital Foundation's Making Rounds Tour where eight members of our community recently toured the hospital, starting first thing in the operating room.
Drs. Das and Mackel were generous in their time to share with our guests the orthopedic surgeries they were performing. Joe and Eileen from the day surgery crew also provided excellent information on processes in the surgical suites, the equipment the Foundation helped purchase, and data on Pardee’s low infection rates. Our guests also visited the new Comprehensive Wound Center to see the new hyperbaric chambers. Paul explained how oxygen therapy works and the types of patients who can benefit.
“I really liked observing surgery and the willingness of the staff to impart information to us,” said Ann N., one of the participants.
