When Lexington County Hospital opened in 1971 as a nonprofit hospital, it quickly became a healthcare leader. More than 50 years later, we continue to serve our community as a local, independent, nonprofit hospital.

A History of Firsts

We were the first area hospital with satellite health facilities and established the first community health education department. We opened the state’s first satellite outpatient facility with services including surgery, urgent care, lab, radiology and physical therapy.

Growing to Meet Needs

By the 1980s, the now-called Lexington Medical Center offered community programs including education on managing disease and learning healthcare skills, such as newborn care and home nursing.

Community Medical Centers

In the 1990s, we established four community medical centers in small towns around Lexington County to provide residents with easier access to top-notch healthcare. In 2001, we opened our largest community medical center in Lexington. The center is larger than the hospital was in 1971.

Advanced Technology & Medical Firsts

Today, we are a modern medical complex. Our patients have access to advanced technology, leading-edge techniques.


Our mission is the same as it was when we opened our doors in 1971: to provide quality health services that meet the needs of our community. We believe that commitment to the health of our community really makes a difference — and we show it every day.
