  • AdventHealth Hendersonville is excited to introduce that Anne Allen, RN, CCM, is the newest winner of the DAISY Foundation Award for nursing. The DAISY Award was created by the family of J. Patrick Barnes to thank the nurses who cared for Patrick and for them as he battled an autoimmune disease. Anne was nominated for the DAISY Award by her Director who highlighted one example of Anne’s exceptional commitment involving a recent patient, who is the full-time caregiver for his wife who has dementia.  Congrats, Anne!

  • Child abuse claims the lives of more than four children a day, and with the increase in financial, emotional and physical stressors from COVID-19, Child Advocacy teams anticipate seeing increases in cases of abuse.

The goal is to encourage families and communities to work together to prevent child abuse and neglect. To learn more about the Pinwheels for Prevention program, please visit
