Here are some photos from Lexington Medical Center’s 2nd annual Colon Cancer Challenge bike ride, held on Saturday, March 26th. Bike ride proceeds will pay for colonoscopies for people who are uninsured.
Each year, LMC staff members can choose to donate to our hospital’s Universal Employee Fund through the LMC Foundation to help fellow employees in times of need. Funds are also designated for departments that request items or services to serve patients in need along with nursing scholarships and the Cancer Care Fund.
The hospital produced this video for the 2011 UEF Campaign, which kicked off this month. Shot on our campus in West Columbia, it features staff and their families. The song was written and sung by Stephen Wessinger, LMC Multimedia Coordinator. We love it and hope you do, too.
The Lexington Medical Center Foundation is pleased to report Women of Hope, a new, exciting program which is bringing women together to invest in the health of women and families throughout the Midlands, is already a success.
To date, more than 55 women have joined Women of HOPE, and the number grows almost daily. Members and hospital employees collected more than 1,000 canned food items during Women of HOPE’s first project, a food drive for Harvest Hope Food Bank.
We hope you will consider being a part of this great group. Membership begins at $100, and your support will help meet the growing needs of women and families throughout the Midlands. Members also receive invitations to lunch and learns and other events throughout the year, which will focus on women’s health.
