Surgical Facility Campaign

Mock up of new OR LMC

This is Our Hospital –  Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.   

On June 13, 2018, Lexington Medical Center broke ground on a new 26,500 square-foot, state-of-the-art surgical facility. The 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 is being asked to support this much-needed facility through a $3 million fundraising campaign.

Make a Donation Now!

The 26,500-square foot facility will house:

  • 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 and
  • A post-operative isolation room

    For patient convenience, our new Surgical Services Facility will be connected to the main hospital and will serve 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.
