Lexington Medical Center has launched its 2016 annual employee giving campaign with a special video showcasing how our hospital employees help each other and its community in times of need. The video features LMC employees and members of the community who received help through the Universal Employee Fund.
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.
