Pardee Hospital Foundation Receives $100,000 Grant From The Cannon Foundation for New Cancer Center
Hendersonville, N.C.—Pardee Hospital Foundation announced today that it has received a $100,000 grant from The Cannon Foundation to support the new Cancer Center at Pardee. The Center is located at 807 N. Justice St., adjacent to Pardee’s main hospital. It is home to medical oncology, radiation oncology, cancer navigation and cancer research.
The Cancer Center has several unique features: an infusion bay with 16 private and semi-private rooms; advanced technology, such as the ultra-precise linear accelerator, a CT simulator that uses lasers to map tumors inside the body; and a phlebotomy lab that can complete tests in less than two minutes, all of which helps to reduce waiting and anxiety for patients.
"We are so grateful for the generous support of The Cannon Foundation," said Kim Hinkelman, executive director of Pardee Hospital Foundation. "Their grant provided funding to help complete the new Cancer Center at Pardee, giving more patients access to advanced, compassionate cancer care.”
