Second annual Chair City Society dinner

Thank you to the more than 30 Chair City Society members who joined Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center Foundation’s second annual Chair City Society dinner at Colonial Country Club on Oct. 17. The foundation created this society in 2018 to recognize and celebrate donors who give $1,000 or more to help us in our mission to save lives and improve the health of our community.

The Chair City Society 2019 honoree was Dr. Beatriz Juncadella, known locally as “Dr. Bea.” Born in Nicaragua, Dr. Bea knew she wanted to be a pediatrician by 8 years old, and since 2005 she has served as pediatrician with Thomasville-Archdale Pediatrics. Her community care goes beyond the practice’s walls, where she is an active volunteer with Grace Community Church and serves on the board of Thomasville YMCA. Most recently, Dr. Bea joined the board of Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center Foundation.

Dr. Bea’s philanthropy extends to her native country, too. In 2007 she founded and now leads a medical mission called La Luz de Cristo Ministries, which focuses on health maintenance, community development, leadership training and children ministries in Nicaragua. During the event, Ms. Kim Magee, whose children have been patients of Dr. Bea for years, praised her for the remarkable care Dr. Bea continues to provide for her family and others.

Congratulations to Dr. Bea, and thank you to our Chair City Society for your support and commitment to the health of our community.
