  • Three state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization suites support intricate diagnostic and interventional procedures, including angioplasty, to clear blocked arteries without traditional surgery or a lengthy recovery.
  • Our powerful linear accelerator delivers precise amounts of radiation to even the smallest cancerous tumors to spare healthy tissue and limit side effects.
  • Our cancer program boasts the region’s most experienced radiologists and pathologists devoted to curing a disease that claims more than 500,000 Americans per year.
  • Since April 2013, we have been equipped with a cutting edge Electrophysiology (EP) suite that is equipped to manage and treat cardiac rhythm disorders and diseases. Since 2017, we now have two full-time dedicated EP providers.
  • We were one of the first in our area to utilize an Image Guided System in neurosurgery which is a state of the art technique that allows the surgeons to target the operative site/area/tissue by using advanced medical technology.
  • Leading the way in the use of new technology utilizing the da Vinci surgical system, we now provide patients with an advanced robotic minimally-invasive alternative to open surgery.
  • Lexington Medical Center is the first hospital in South Carolina to implant the Abbott Confirm Rx™ insertable cardiac monitor, the world's first and only smartphone-compatible ICM designed to help doctors detect cardiac arrhythmias, including irregular heartbeats and atrial fibrillation.

Advances in Radiology

  • Computed Tomography (CT) Department
    Lexington Medical Center has installed another CT Scanner, giving us a total of 4 high-end CT scanners that along with our 16 slice allows us to perform even more of the challenging exams such as cardiac work, arteriograms and Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Replacements (TAVR).

    The CT department also screens patients for Lung Cancer by performing Low-Dose Lung Screening exams on patients who meet the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) guidelines.
  • Nuclear Medicine Department
    Lexington Medical Center has recently added more functionality to Nuclear Medicine with a new General Electric (GE) camera allowing us more flexibility for patient exams.
  • Radiologist
    Lexington Medical Center recently upgraded our PACS system for our radiologist. This technology allows more functionality for the radiologists and will help improve turnaround times for imaging reports to the ordering provider.
  • Ultrasound Department
    Replaced Ultrasound Unit with the latest GE technology (The Logiq E9 XDclear system).

    The Logiq E9 XDclear system is a powerful and versatile general imaging system that helps meet a wide variety of Ultrasound needs with intuitive, advance capabilities delivering extraordinary image quality for a broad spectrum of patient body types.
  • Women’s Imaging Center (WIC)
    Replaced Ultrasound units with Logiq 8 from General Electric (GE). The units have elastography and other functions that optimize visualization of breast tissue and lymph nodes. Visualization of the needle during biopsies is optimized as well as the clip placement post biopsy.

    The First Phase of the Foundation’s Campaign for Clarity to install Three-Dimensional (3D) Mammography across the district is two-thirds complete. Lexington Medical Center - Lexington’s 3D unit has been installed and they are now performing 3D exams. Lexington Medical Center’s WIC has installed a 3D unit as well which makes the second unit for this location. The mobile unit will has been outfitted for 3D; updating the uninterruptible power supply (UPS), electrical and security systems.

Radiation Oncology

  • Now operating with three linear accelerators; Lexington Medical Center’s Radiation Oncology continues to offer access to the most advanced technology in the fight against cancer.  Utilizing Varian’s True Beam targeted therapy and advanced imaging - also known as stereotactic radiosurgery SRS or stereotactic body radiosurgery SBRT, cancerous targets not considered for radiation treatments, are now being treated.  The same advanced technologies offered at large research facilities are being offered closer to home.

Da Vinci Surgical System

  • Leading the way in the use of new technology utilizing the da Vinci® surgical system, we now provide patients with an advanced robotic minimally-invasive alternative to open surgery. Of the 1045 total cases which were performed using this technology from 2016-2017, 22% were gynecological cases, 64% surgery cases, and 14% urological cases.

TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement)

  • Lexington Medical Center has continued to build its heart program by offering a variety of new services. In May of 2014, LMC began to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement, known as TAVR, with a team of board-certified physicians and clinicians. This state-of- the-art cardiovascular technology allows doctors to replace the aortic valve in patients without open heart surgery.

    Lexington Medical Center participates in the Society for Thoracic Surgery (STS) and American College of Cardiology (ACC)’s national TAVR Registry which, as shown below, continues to validate Lexington Medical Center’s excellent patient outcomes compared to the TAVR programs in the nation.

World’s Smallest Pacemaker – Micra

  • Celebrating the 6th anniversary of its comprehensive cardiovascular program, Lexington Medical Center has become a leader in heart care in our community. In March 2017, LMC became the first hospital in South Carolina to implant a new wireless pacemaker called Micra to fix a slow heart beat that affects the bottom chamber of the heart. Patients with a slow or irregular heart beat that arises from a problem in the top chamber or both chambers of the heart are not good candidates for Micra. Called the world’s smallest pacemaker, this device is not visible under the skin, and because there are no wires connected to it, there is a lower risk of complications.

    It is the size of a vitamin capsule and is inserted through a small incision in the patient’s upper leg. From there, it’s expertly threaded through the vein and placed directly into the heart. Tiny prongs then send electrical impulses to pace the heart in a natural, healthy rhythm. Since there are no leads, the concern is eliminated about the leads shifting within the heart. Once placed, the sophisticated device adjusts the rhythm to the patient’s activity level and can keep a patient’s heart rhythm regular for about 12 years.

WATCHMAN ™

  • Lexington Medical Center's heart program continues to grow. The Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion (LAAO) device, WATCHMAN ™, debuted in March 2017. This innovative one-time procedure is minimally invasive, performed in the Cath Lab, and lasts about an hour. Most patients are discharged home the following day. WATCHMAN ™ has proven to offer stroke risk reduction by preventing blood clots that form during non-valvular atrial fibrillation. This device also eliminates the need for long-term anticoagulation in patients who are at risk for bleeding complications.

LMC First in the State to Implant Smartphone-Compatible Cardiac Monitor

  • Lexington Medical Center is the first hospital in South Carolina to implant the Abbott Confirm Rx™ insertable cardiac monitor, the world's first and only smartphone-compatible ICM designed to help doctors detect cardiac arrhythmias, including irregular heartbeats and atrial fibrillation.

    An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm that develops when disease or injury disrupts the heart's electrical signals. As the heart begins to beat too fast or too slow, patients experience symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath or fainting. An electrocardiogram is the most common test used to detect arrhythmias; however, it can only identify arrhythmias that occur during an ECG. Holter monitors are portable, battery-operated recorders that track continuous electrocardiographic signals for 24 to 48 hours while patients go about their normal daily activities. Event monitors are similar to Holter monitors, but they only record the heart's activity at certain times. For long-term heart rhythm monitoring, doctors implant loop recorders. These devices require additional equipment to send a patient's heart rhythm information to his or her provider.

    Long-term monitoring can often detect heart rhythm abnormalities that occur infrequently. With Confirm Rx, doctors implant the monitor under the skin in the chest during a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. The device continuously monitors the heart for abnormal rhythms and connects to the patient's smartphone to record real-time episodes of irregular heartbeats. Bluetooth® wireless technology allows patients to track their symptoms and share their results with their provider instantly using Abbott's myMerlin™ mobile app. Physicians can remotely monitor their patients' heart rhythm and accurately diagnose arrhythmias that may require further treatment
