Honoring Dr. Charlie Crews

During the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s dinner and talk with USC baseball coach Ray Tanner last week, the hospital paid special tribute to a key person in its history, Dr. Charlie Crews.

Dr. Crews was the first surgeon at Lexington Medical Center when the hospital opened in 1971. Today, Dr. Crews is 93-years-old. Long after his retirement, he and his wife Dot, a former nurse, remain long-standing and loyal members of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation.

LMC President and CEO Mike Biediger, standing with coach Ray Tanner and USC President Harris Pastides, presented a resolution to Dr. Crews honoring his service to Lexington Medical Center.

Here is an excerpt from the resolution:

“In Testimony Whereof Know that Dr and Mrs. Charles F. Crews are recognized and honored for outstanding contributions to their community. Their tireless efforts and leadership throughout the Midlands have made it possible for quality health care to be provided.”

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Crews.

  1. Dr. Crews was my mother’s doctor in 1971-73 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. We could not have asked for a better physician for her needs and also to our family. A generous man and always caring about his patients. He shall never be forgotten in our hearts.
