It’s Not Just Health Care – It’s Whole Care

The AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation is taking on the need for increased access to safe, effective behavioral health care through its annual Experience Gala. The proceeds of this year’s Gala ticket sales will help fund a Behavioral Health pod in the AdventHealth Hendersonville Emergency Department. The ER is often where behavioral health patients receive their first care at AdventHealth. This Behavioral Health Pod will feature five specially designed patient rooms to accommodate patients experiencing mental health issues. “Having these rooms available for people coming in with acute behavioral health needs allows our care teams to bring patients into a setting that is safe and comforting for their physical and mental health needs,” said Beth Cassidy, DNP, MSN, NE-BC,RNC-OB, AdventHealth Hendersonville Director of Clinical Services: Emergency Department, Behavioral Health, and Clinical Education.

The causes of mental health issues vary, but one group that is seeing particularly high rates is military veterans. Nearly 20 veterans commit suicide in the United States every day. The need to expand access to care for veterans and all members of our community experiencing behavioral health issues is why the AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation is inviting you to its annual gala, “Experience Heroes of the Red, White and Blue”. This year’s AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation Gala will take place on Thursday, May 9, at 5:30 pm at Signature Flight Support – Asheville Regional Airport.

This year’s military setting will be an elegant evening honoring our nation’s military heroes. The program will feature the presentation of the Dr. P.J. Moore, Jr. & Dr. Arthur A. Pearson Award of Excellence to Jeff Miller and Blue Ridge Honor Flight.

The Gala includes a chance drawing for a trip to Washington, D.C. The winner receives two, round-trip coach airline tickets with departure from a nearby airport and a five-night, double occupancy stay in Washington. A single ticket purchase is $25 or five tickets maybe purchased for $100 at
