Best in the Nation: Irmo Ambulatory Surgery Centers Recognized for Excellence in Patient Experience

Lexington Medical Center’s ambulatory surgery center in Irmo has been named one of the best in the nation for patient experience by Press Ganey, a well-known company in the health care industry that collects patient, employee and physician evaluations on hospitals.

“Achieving this level of excellence reflects Lexington Medical Center’s commitment to delivering outstanding service and quality,” said Susan Horton, director of Guest Services. “The employees at Lexington Medical Center Irmo always strive to provide the most extraordinary care to our patients.”
