Now in its 26th year, this program introduces some of Lexington County’s brightest high school students to a career in the health care industry.

During a three-week session, students rotated through three clinical areas in the mornings. They participated in afternoon activities two days a week at the University of South Carolina School of Nursing, Midlands Technical College’s surgical technician program and LMC Extended Care.

The Partners Program continues to be a popular program with Lexington County students and hospital staff. In fact, several hospital employees participated in the program when they attended high school.

Supported by the Lexington Medical Center Foundation, this year’s Partners Program received 170 applications. The students went through a rigorous interview process with a written application and an interview with a panel of hospital staff members.

Today, the Lexington Medical Center Foundation awarded a rising senior from each Lexington County high school and one rising senior from home/private schools with a $1,000 book scholarship for their freshman year of college.

The Lexington Medical Center Foundation thanks the South Carolina National Safety Council, NORD Family Foundation, Colonial Life and Women of Hope for supporting the 2016 Partners Program.
