Overcoming Breast Cancer

Each month, Lexington Medical Center partners with WLTX to help with the TV station’s “Buddy Call” segment. That’s when news anchors Darci Strickland and Andrea Mock profile a breast cancer survivor and tell women to call a “buddy” and remind her to do a self-breast exam. This month, their story focused on Janie Lakin.

In addition to being an 8-year cancer survivor, Janie was a model in the 2018 breast cancer survivor fashion show during Women’s Night Oct, Lexington Medical Center’s annual event recognizing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here are sone photos of Janie on the catwalk.

All Aboard! Our New Christmas Tradition

Our hospital lobby has a new addition for the Christmas season. Dr. Richard Webb of Lexington Surgical Associates, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice, has graciously allowed us to display his beautiful model train collection during the holiday season.

Dr. Webb has been collecting the pieces since childhood. The set has already garnered a lot of attention and accolades from hospital staff and community members. We hope it’s the beginning of a holiday tradition for many years to come.

Learn all about Dr. Webb’s love for these trains in the video below.

And Merry Christmas!

Honoring President George H. W. Bush

Today we honor President George H.W. Bush. The 41st President of the United States visited Lexington Medical Center on May 10, 1994. He was the keynote speaker at a Foundation dinner. He also took time to speak with hospital staff members. It was a great day. Here are some photos from our archives. Thank you, Mr. President, for your service to our nation.
