N.C., AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation Welcomes New Board Members for 2022

Mar. 3, 2022; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – The AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation supports the health system’s mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ through community support, partnerships and fundraising opportunities.

We are excited to introduce you to the newest community members to join us in these efforts to support the whole-person care services of AdventHealth Hendersonville:

Michael Dexter-Smith, Xtremesoft, Inc., President and CEO, and Pine Brook Ventures, Founder

Fair Nabers-Waggoner, United Community Bank, City President

Colonel Peter Champagne, U.S. Army, Retired

Michael lives in Transylvania County and has a passion for health care. He is committed to being a community impact leader for the health and wellness needs of the people who call Transylvania County and all of Western North Carolina Home.

Fair is a native of Henderson County and has been a long-time friend and advocate for AdventHealth. She is quick to share community engagement is a large part of her life and she is excited to bring her commitment to her hometown community to her role as a member of the AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation Board.

Col. Champagne is a familiar face to the community and to the AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation Board. He is returning to the board after taking a break to launch the No Barriers veteran event established in Western North Carolina.

“The dedication of our incredible board members, which now include Michael, Fair and Col. Champagne, are what make it possible to bring innovative programs and technology to the people of Western North Carolina,” said Sherri Holbert, Foundation Director at AdventHealth Hendersonville. “Together we are looking forward to supporting AdventHealth in its commitment to provide whole-person care – body, mind and spirit to our community.”

AdventHealth Hendersonville's Foundation builds community support, forms partnerships, and raises funds to discover new and groundbreaking treatments while supporting the organization’s promise to help you feel whole for your whole life.

The recent generosity of our communities has allowed the Foundation to purchase new vital-scan monitors for The Baby Place at AdventHealth Hendersonville, a much-needed ice machine in the Cancer Services Center, 24 specialized privacy doors to keep patients and team members safe on the Behavioral Health Women’s unit, and the disbursement of more than $136,000 in medical assistance for uninsured patients.
