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.
"Being a Pardee Team Member has allowed me to talk about one of the most significant passions in my life which is being a nurse. A bedside nurse who loves to care for people and make a difference in their lives. I am still unsure about what our affiliation with UNCHC will mean for us, but it is my hope that it will mean more nursing education as well as better opportunities for growth and expansion. New opportunities for improved and less invasive technology. One of the good things that I have seen so far is Jay Kirby who I really like and trust to lead us forward. Our need for leadership has never been greater and we have suffered for many years from too many administrative changes and lackluster leadership. I have never had any problem being passionate about being a nurse but I now have a renewed passion for my hospital."
"Being a Pardee Team Member means I'm part of an organization that is striving for continual growth and opportunity, not only within the healthcare industry and the community, but also for its employee family.I see being a partner with UNCH as an opportunity for us to gain valuable knowledge and support from a much larger organization that can help us obtain our goals. It's always easier to reach your goals when you have a support system, and UNCH is a great one to have in our corner."
