Lexington Medical Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 16, 2021 for its new community medical center in Northeast Columbia.
Initially, Lexington Medical Center Northeast is offering urgent care; imaging services, including mobile MRI, X-ray, ultrasound, CT and women’s imaging; and physical and occupational therapy. There is also a café and meeting space on the first floor.
The second, third, fourth and fifth floors will house physician practices, as many Lexington Medical Center specialists are opening satellite offices at this facility. Two physician practices - Lexington Podiatry and Southeastern Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine - opened in the facility on March 15. Lexington Urology will open an office there on April 1. This summer, Lexington Surgery, Lexington Medical Heart and Vascular Center and cardiac rehabilitation will open there.
Lexington Medical Center Northeast 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.
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, Lexington Medical Center hopes to add outpatient surgery services and a fixed unit MRI at the facility.
“Lexington Medical Center 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.
