Biz Roundup: Lexington Medical Center receives $100,000 grant for surgery expansion

LEXINGTON – Wake Forest Baptist Health’s Lexington Medical Center has received a $100,000 grant from the Cannon Foundation for a $31.5 million expansion of its surgical facility.

“We are grateful to the Cannon Foundation for recognizing the importance of this project that helps meet the current and future health care needs of those in our community and throughout the region,” said Bill James, president of Lexington Medical Center. “Their support, along with the support of so many others in our community, is an investment that allows more people to receive convenient and high-quality care and treatment, close to home.”

A campaign that raised $3 million for the project was led by the Lexington Medical Center Foundation.

The 26,500-square-foot facility includes four fully digital operating rooms, a 10-bay post-anesthesia care unit for patients to recover after surgery, a urology procedure room, a spacious waiting area for families, and private consultation rooms for physicians and family members.

Lexington Medical Center will host an open house at the expanded surgical facility on Sept. 29.

The Cannon Foundation, based in Concord, was established in 1943 by Charles A. Cannon, president and CEO of Cannon Mills. The foundation continues his philanthropic legacy by funding capital and equipment projects for organizations across his home state of North Carolina.
