Pardee UNC Health Care is committed to patient-centered, safe care throughout all of our hospitals and health care facilities. Due to the growing spread of coronavirus / COVID-19 in North Carolina, and to limit the risk of exposure for patients, caregivers, and employees, Pardee is cancelling all Bariatric classes and support groups. We continue to monitor this situation and will re-evaluate for future dates.
