Update from the Every Woman Bloggers

Since 2011, we have been proud to provide a forum for women of the Midlands to share their life experiences with a larger audience. Over the years, we have had many bloggers participate and write about countless topics. We are honored that they choose to share their stories with us!

If you haven’t checked out the Every Woman Blog recently, we invite you to stop by and read contributions from our wonderful bloggers. Some recent highlights include:

Marianna has been sharing recaps and plans about her summer travel. In her most recent post, she shared a recap about her summer road trip to Arizona with her family. Full of fun photos, and details from their drive, her post helps you to live vicariously through her travels! Read more here.

Rachel has been sharing her journey to achieve a gluten-free lifestyle and recently reminded us about her story of health discovery during Celiac Awareness Month in May.

Tina, a nurse at LMC who recently received her BSN degree, is also a volunteer at the Riverbanks Zoo. She chronicled her recent visit to the Greenville Zoo, and has talked about her favorite parts of the Riverbanks Zoo in the past. She is a busy lady!

Shannon has been writing on the blog for several years and we love her passion for creativity, art and family. She recently wrote about role models, an important topic for any parent!

Lisa has been challenged by dementia diagnoses for both of her parents. She has been very candid and honest about the rough year her family has endured. She sadly lost her mother earlier this year and continues to take care of her father. We so appreciate her sharing her story, as so many others are facing similar issues!

 

We are so appreciative of all of our bloggers and encourage you to check out their posts every week!

Introducing Lexington Medical Center Northeast

Lexington Medical Center broke ground today on a new medical facility in Northeast Columbia called Lexington Medical Center Northeast. The 225,000 square foot building will provide patients with urgent care and imaging services, outpatient surgery, occupational therapy, physical therapy, a walking trail and classroom space. Located near the intersection of Clemson and Longtown Roads, it’s expected to open in late 2020.

Architect’s rendering of Lexington Medical Center Northeast

“This new building will allow us to provide the best possible care to our patients in Northeast Columbia,” said Tod Augsburger, president & CEO of Lexington Medical Center. “We are grateful for the support and trust of the people of Northeast Columbia, and look forward to opening this new space in the fall of next year.”

Lexington Medical Center currently has ten physician practices in Northeast Columbia. The addition of Lexington Medical Center Northeast will allow the hospital to provide patients in the Northeast Columbia area of the Midlands with more services. In addition to urgent care and imaging including MRIs, CT scans and X-rays, there will also be three operating rooms for a variety of outpatient surgeries, along with occupational therapy, physical therapy, a walking track and classroom space. Ultimately, four floors of the new space will be home to medical specialists, allowing patients a wide variety of health care options close to home.

Importantly, the new facility will allow a patient’s medical history to be integrated into Lexington Medical Center’s electronic heath record, which allows physicians to see a patient’s complete medical history with the touch of a fingertip, and patients to have their own record on their smart phone with the hospital’s MyChart application.

In addition to bringing needed medical services to the community, Lexington Medical Center Northeast is expected to create 125 jobs when it opens and up to 400 jobs as new physician practices are added in the future.
