A project of LEXINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Your support will aide upcoming updates, including a new Outpatient Service Center and patient room renovations.
Over the past year, Lexington Regional Health Center has taken many steps to advance health care opportunities available to those in and around our community. We have added new radiology and rehabilitation services, taken on new surgical procedures, and opened Urgent Care. Yet facility renovations are still necessary to continue providing the latest health care services, as we continue to diligently work on providing state-of-the-art care.
New Outpatient Service Center
In spring 2013, Lexington Regional Health Center will begin the first phase of construction and renovations. The first phase includes breaking ground on an Outpatient Service Center that will be attached to the current building. This new space will accommodate visiting specialists who see patients, plus allow for future expansion of specialty services. The expansion will also include new surgery rooms and pre-and post-operative rooms.
The Outpatient Service Center will bring the clinic space, post-operative recovery, and operating rooms to one central location. Everything from registration to discharge will take place in the same area. There will also have a room dedicated to telemedicine so that community members and patients can consult with a specialist without leaving the comfort and support of their community.
Additionally in this phase, the kitchen and dining area will also move to a new location. A new café concept will be family-friendly and provide additional space for needed meeting rooms that can be used by staff and community groups.
Privatizing Patient Rooms
Following the Outpatient Service Center, the next phase of renovations will include updating patient rooms for single occupancy. This is in response to feedback from patient advisory groups, patient satisfaction surveys, and industry standards. Lexington Regional’s goal is to be able to offer private rooms to all patients and that quality, safety, privacy, and patient experience will drive the room renovation process. Adequate space for family, patients, and providers will assist in the healing process.
