The South Carolina General Assembly has passed a concurrent resolution commending Lexington Medical Center and Providence Hospitals for “collaboratively working to improve medical care for the citizens of the Midlands of South Carolina.”  The resolution is in response to a significant agreement the hospitals reached recently that serves to improve access to care.

On February 25, 2009, the hospitals announced that Providence Hospitals will support Lexington Medical Center’s efforts to secure an open heart surgery program and Lexington Medical Center will drop its objections to a proposed expansion at Providence Hospitals Northeast.

The resolution, introduced by senators Nikki Setzler, Jake Knotts, John Courson and Ronnie Cromer, and passed by both the state Senate and the State House of Representatives, states “the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, congratulate and commend Providence Hospitals and Lexington Medical Center, their leadership and employees for forging an agreement to work collaboratively for the betterment of the health and well-being of their patients and the citizens of the Midlands of South Carolina.”
