Pardee UNC Health Care Honors 122 Employees at Service Appreciation Banquet

Pardee UNC Health Care recently hosted a service appreciation banquet to honor 122 team members representing nearly every service line. The event took place on Tuesday, June 25 at Point Lookout Vineyard and recognized Pardee employees who have worked for Pardee for five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years. The longest-serving team members are Frieda Hudson and Patty Praytor, who have both been with the hospital for 40 years. Honorees and their guests were treated to passed hors d’oeuvres, a buffet and a recognition ceremony. Johnna Reed, chief operating officer, and Jay Kirby, chief executive officer, led the award ceremony and presented each recipient with a “badge buddy” for their corresponding years of service.

“It was a pleasure to recognize our hard-working, long-time team members,” said Kirby. “These folks have served Pardee from five to 40 years. We are grateful for their commitment to our mission to improve the health of the communities we serve.”
