Patient and Visitor Updates

Pardee UNC Health Care is proud to support patients and address their health care concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the COVID-19 situation has evolved, our patients and visitor policies are evolving as well. If you have medical needs, please do not delay seeking care, whether it is COVID-19 related or not. Pardee UNC Health Care remains committed to patient-centered, safe care throughout all of our facilities. Pardee has taken precautions to ensure we can safely care for you through both in-person and virtual care. We are closely following guidance from both state and local health officials, as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for surgeries and procedures at our facility. We are diligently following health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for example: disinfecting all patient areas, screening all individuals before entering the facility, restricting access for visitors, vendors, volunteers and students and masking.

Visitor Restrictions

Due to the growing spread of coronavirus / COVID-19 and the delta variant in North Carolina, and to limit the risk of exposure for patients, caregivers, and employees, Pardee has revised our visitor restrictions.

COVID-19 Precautions

If you have a cough or shortness of breath or you are concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you can contact your provider directly and schedule a virtual visit, or schedule an in-person visit at Pardee Urgent Care Fletcher, Pardee Urgent Care Brevard, or Pardee Urgent Care Hendersonville, all of which offer provider visits for COVID evaluation and rapid COVID-19 testing.

If you’re experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 and inform the dispatcher if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
