Surgical Facility Campaign

This is Our Hospital – Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

In 2019, Lexington Medical Center completed a new state-of-the-art surgical facility. The new facility and its technology will: 

  • Increase precision and accuracy inside the operating room
  • Give surgical staff easier access and better mobility during surgery
  • Reduce surgical time, allowing LMC to accommodate more patients
  • Ensure our community has access to the latest medical procedures
  • Help retain our base of surgical providers and recruit outstanding new physicians 

At a total cost of $31.5 million, the project represents a major investment for Wake Forest Baptist Health. The Lexington community supported this much-needed facility through a $3 million fundraising campaign that concluded in December 2019.

A variety of employees, donors and community members mingle in the atrium of the Lexington Medical Center during the ribbon-cutting for the new surgical suiteThe 26,500-square-foot facility includes:

  • Four new operating rooms, each more than 700 square feet
  • A new 1,200-square-foot family waiting area
  • Two private family consult rooms
  • Nine post-operative recovery bays
  • A post-operative isolation room

For patient convenience, our new Surgical Services Facility is connected to the main hospital and serves all surgical procedures, from cases that may require a hospital stay to minimally invasive, outpatient procedures.

At Lexington Medical Center, our mission is to provide the very best care for our patients. This new surgical facility will help us evolve to meet these critical needs of our community by offering the most modern surgical services close to home, sparing our patients and their families from having to drive long distances for their care.
