Operation LMC Tix

Lexington Medical Center is pleased to partner with the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia for a new ticketing system and box office. You can now go to or call 1-855-4LMC-TIX to purchase tickets for Colonial Life Arena events.

To kick off the partnership, we held a contest called “OPERATION: Relay” today. Seven Lexington Medical Center employees raced against each other to dress in surgical scrubs. Then, each employee tried to stay calm and cool under pressure while they surgically removed 13 obstacles in a unique “LMC Operation” game. The winner of the contest received a pair of tickets to all ticketed events at the Colonial Life Arena for 2012! Here’s a look:

Kelli Bennett, workforce development coordinator in LMC’s Human Resources department, won. Kelli says she’s looking forward to going to the Michael Jackson Cirque de Soliel show.
