Stay Calm and Go Gamecocks!

It’s Homecoming Weekend at the University of South Carolina! At Lexington Medical Center, we know that staying calm is one way to prevent heart disease. Before you watch the football game this weekend, watch this video and download a free “color me stress free” color sheet at LexMed.com/Know.

At our hospital, we want you to “Just Say Know” to heart disease.

Go Gamecocks! Beat Vandy!

 

Heart & Sole Women’s Five Miler

Nearly 1,300 women participated in the 16th annual Lexington Medical Center Heart & Sole Women’s Five Miler on Saturday, April 22 in Columbia. About 1/4 of them were Lexington Medical Center employees showing their commitment to a healthy lifestyle and raising awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.

Hoops for Hearts

Last night was a slam dunk! We had a great time at the University of South Carolina v. Auburn women’s basketball game. USC Athletics Director Ray Tanner presented Dr. Brandon Drafts of Lexington Cardiology, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice, with the game ball in honor of the hospital’s efforts to show our community how to “Just Say Know” to heart disease by learning about risk factors, symptoms and prevention.

If you were there, you may have seen the “heart attack” from our heart commercials. The man who portrays this character personifies a heart attack and tries to guide people to make heart-healthy decisions. He was even in the crowd cheering on the Lady Gamecocks.
