Dr. David Hammett, neurologist with the Columbia Medical Group, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice, is featured in this WIS report about Bell’s Palsy, a condition that causes paralysis of the face. WIS reporter Mary King shared her story of experiencing Bell’s Palsy.
Lexington Medical Center has launched its 2012 annual employee giving campaign called “Hope Lives Here” with a special video showcasing how our hospital employees help each other in times of need.
The video features Kenyottia Gray, a patient access specialist in the hospital’s Emergency Room, signing a song written by Stephen Wessinger of the Marketing department. The video also features LMC employees who received help in the last year.
Each year, Lexington Medical Center employees donate more than $500,000 to the hospital’s Universal Employee Fund (known around here as UEF). In the last year, the money has helped employees in catastrophic situations including house fires, natural disasters, domestic violence, life-threatening medical situations and unaffordable funeral expenses.
In addition, funds are also designated for departments that request items or services to serve patients in need. Recently, that’s included an exercise program at Health Directions designed specifically for cancer patients, painted murals in pediatric patient areas and educational resources for Cardiac Rehabilitation patients.
Lexington Medical Center employees are a very caring group.
