Our 2017 Heart Commercial

We’re pleased to present our 2017 heart commercial. It’s never too early to prevent heart disease. That’s the message of Lexington Medical Center’s 2017 heart commercial. It features scenes in the life of a man as he ages from 23 to 55 engaging in behavior that ultimately leads to a heart attack.

It’s the latest installment in a series of heart commercials produced in-house by Lexington Medical Center during the month of February, which is American Heart Month. The spot also continues the tradition of featuring a character who personifies a heart attack and narrates the story.

 

Lexington Medical Center is committed to educating our community about cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for one out of every three deaths in South Carolina. As the region’s only Duke Health-affiliated heart center, Lexington Medical Center is able to provide patients with quality cardiovascular care, and the most advanced treatments and protocols available in medicine.

Our 2015 Christmas Commercial

Please join us in welcoming the holiday season by viewing our annual Christmas television commercial. This year’s spot pays tribute to pet therapy and debuts today.

Featuring a pet therapy dog named Bailey who travels through the hospital inviting patients and employees to a holiday celebration, the 60-second commercial inspires feelings of hope, peace and joy. The commercial includes Lexington Medical Center employees, a talented lead singer and a Christmas music concert featuring Alan Jackson’s song, “Let It Be Christmas.” It was filmed on our hospital campus in West Columbia.


Studies have shown that pet therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue in people with a range of health problems, including those receiving cancer treatment or patients hospitalized with chronic heart failure. Family members, friends and staff feel better, too.
You can watch the Christmas commercial on the hospital’s YouTube channel or during your favorite Christmas TV show this holiday season.

It’s the ninth year Lexington Medical Center has produced its own Christmas commercial. To view all of them, visit our You Tube channel.

Please share the commercial with your family and friends. From our Lexington Medical Center family to your family, Merry Christmas.

We believe we all need someone to lean on.”
