Scrubs Day

Lexington Medical Center proudly supported The Salvation Army’s Christmas assistance program today by participating in Scrubs Day. Each year, The Salvation Army provides Christmas presents for children throughout the Midlands. On Scrubs Day, LMC volunteers wore green scrubs and helped throughout the day at the S.C. State Fairgrounds. Volunteers received children’s Christmas wish lists and filled boxes to make holiday hopes a reality.

Santa’s Workshop

Lexington Medical Center has its own Santa’s Workshop in place this week as it works to provide Christmas presents for 60 families in need throughout our community. The hospital’s social workers identified families they have worked with throughout the year to receive the gifts, which are generously donated by Lexington Medical Center employees.

Lexington Medical Center departments and staff members “adopted” 35 families and asked for a wish list from each of them. After reviewing the lists, the employees purchased toys, clothes, bikes, electronics, food items, gift cards and more. Families will pick up the items this week. MSW students from the University of South Carolina are the “elves” in the workshop as families arrive.

“Lexington Medical Center is delighted and excited to help these community members,” said Sara Sims, community social worker at Lexington Medical Center. “The generosity of hospital employees is overwhelming.”

In addition, hospital social workers have selected 25 elderly residents in the Midlands to receive Christmas baskets filled with items including socks, candy, hot chocolate, snacks, coffee, tea and puzzle books. Lexington Medical Center employees have made donations to purchase the items. Community social workers will arrange and deliver the baskets later this week.

This is the 12th year that Lexington Medical Center has had its own adopt-a-family program. The hospital enjoys extending its work beyond the hospital to enhance the well being of our community.

Our 2014 LMC Christmas Commercial

We’re pleased to present Lexington Medical Center’s 2014 Christmas commercial!

Filmed on our hospital campus, the 60-second spot focuses on the importance of family – all from a baby’s perspective.

You might recognize several LMC staff members. The babies in the commercial were born at our hospital. And, children of LMC employees have speaking roles.

Lexington Medical Center was voted “Best Hospital to Have A Baby” by readers of The State newspaper this year, and we deliver more babies than any other hospital in the Midlands.

You can watch the commercial on the hospital’s You Tube channel or during your favorite Christmas TV show this holiday season.

From our LMC family to yours, Merry Christmas.
