Pardee Hospital

The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee Hospital

As per the Bylaws, the Kenmure Fights Cancer Board of Directors voted that 50% of the funds raised in the year 2017 be donated to the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee Hospital.

The mission of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee is to support the National Cancer Institute goal to ultimately eliminate suffering and death due to cancer in Henderson County and the western region of North Carolina. The core values of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee are:

  • Service to the community through education and prevention
  • Compassionate care to patients and families
  • Commitment to quality
  • Best in research and technology
This will be the 10th year that our funds have assisted cancer patients at Pardee. During this period, Kenmure Fights Cancer has raised almost $170,000 for this worthwhile organization. More...

Use of 2018 funds:

This year the funds we raise will advance the technology available to the cancer center pharmacy where infusions are prepared. Currently the lab uses a manual process called volumetric compounding. The new system, BD CATO, would integrate software with hardware.

This system, called gravametric compounding reduces human errors, such as selection of the wrong medication concentration, problems with packaging and names that are similar and various other conditions that lead to mistakes.

Pardee Oncology Infusion Pharmacy will be the first pharmacy in the WNC region to utilize a gravimetric compounding software for compounding sterile hazardous medications.

This program costs $42,948 annually. A 60 month contract is $217,740.

Our 2018 Kenmure Fights Cancer donation will go toward startup of this program. The hospital will add the necessary startup funds and will be responsible for funding it in the future.
