Lexington Medical Center opened its newest community medical center on March 9, 2021. Located at Longtown Road and Clemson Road in Northeast Columbia, this facility is the largest community medical center in the hospital’s network of care. At more than 225,000 square feet, the five-story building is more than double the size of the hospital when it opened in 1971.
“Lexington Medical Center Northeast improves access to care for patients in this community and enhances the services they receive from other Lexington Medical Center providers,” said Tod Augsburger, LMC president and CEO. “This facility helps us meet the health care needs in a growing community and gives us the opportunity to provide a wider array of services for our patients.”
LMC Northeast currently offers urgent care; imaging services, including mobile MRI, X-ray, ultrasound, CT and women’s imaging; and physical and occupational therapy. There is also be a café and meeting space on the first floor. The second, third, fourth and fifth floors house physician practices, as many LMC specialists are opening satellite offices at this facility. These specialties include general surgery, podiatry, urology, orthopaedics and cardiology. Urgent care provides services through the evening hours to give patients an option other than visiting an emergency room. It is open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Looking ahead, LMC hopes to provide outpatient surgery and stationary MRI services at this facility.
“LMC Northeast extends our network of care further into the community, improving access to our physicians, advanced practice providers and health care services, bringing them closer to our patients in Northeast Columbia,” said Lara Lott Moore, vice president in Physician Network Administration.
