Pardee Hospital recently joined the UNC Health Care family. Along with the strength of this new partnership, we continue to hold a unique place in our community.
While UNC Health Care has not purchased Pardee, we have committed to a 10 year management partnership that is so significant that we've added them to our name.
"I am honored to be chosen by Case Management to be a member of Fire Starters. I feel the group has heard a lot of good ideas from team members. These ideas will help each employee grow and prosper not only at the hospital but out in the community. We will all be one big team because each one of us will say “I am Pardee” and be proud. Being a team member with UNC HC will bring growth for hospital employees and the community."
"To be a team member means working towards a common goal. Since serving on the Pardee “Service Standards” committee I have developed new friendships and feel like I belong to a special group whose goal is to ensure that the “Performance Standards”, we have developed are followed. Our “ACTIONS” not only “Speak louder than Words” but they define who we are and how we impact the attitudes of our patients and coworkers. By serving on this committee, we have not only been asked to develop standards but must now serve as role models to our fellow workers. We also need to be an advocate for our patients. Our patients are the reason we come to work each day. By treating all our patients with the respect and compassion they deserve we can make a difference in their lives. We truly are Pardee, and how the community views our hospital is how we present ourselves and facility to them. Personally, I can say that I work with a great team that genuinely cares about our patients and each other. We have outstanding physicians, an excellent leader and a caring professional and clerical staff who go the extra mile everyday for patients and coworkers. People are surprised when I say, “This is the best job I have ever had”, but honestly it is, and the reason I can say that is because of the patients we care for and the people I work with. "
