The one-day trip to Washington, D.C. is designed to recognize war veterans for their service. In the nation’s capital, the veterans tour the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and Iwo Jima Memorial. They also take a driving tour of Washington D.C. In the afternoon, the veterans are special guests at Arlington National Cemetery as they observe the Changing of The Guard ceremony at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier.
“Lexington Medical Center and its board of directors wanted to take the opportunity to highlight one of our most valuable community assets – our service men and women,” said Barbara Willm, Lexington Medical Center’s Vice President of Community Relations. “They have been called our national treasure and we are privileged to honor them.”
Lexington Medical Center is proud to welcome Will Floyd, MD, MPH, into the hospital’s network of care. Dr. Floyd has joined Alice Barker, MD, and Dana Rawl, MD as a practicing physician at Occupational Health, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.
Dr. Floyd will provide health care services ranging from pre-placement assessments to comprehensive treatment of workers’ compensation injuries. With the addition of Dr. Floyd, Lexington Medical Center is now home to the only occupational health program in South Carolina with three physicians who are board certified in occupational medicine.
“I’m very excited about joining Lexington Medical Center and look forward to meeting the occupational health needs of the Midlands’ business and industrial community,” said Dr. Floyd.
