LMC will not allow visitors
Visitors will no longer be allowed in Lexington Medical Center facilities.
The decision comes after Gov. Henry McMaster strongly urged hospitals to limit visitation during yesterday's executive order address.
This restriction includes the Emergency department, all procedure areas and inpatient units.
There are some patient circumstances when Lexington Medical Center will allow one visitor:
- Obstetric patients
- Pediatric patients
- Newborn Nursery and Special Care Nursery patients
- End-of-life events
Children younger than 18 years of age are not approved as visitors. Additionally, there will be no visitors for patients suspected of or who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Effective Monday, March 23, Lexington Medical Center’s ambulatory surgery centers at Lexington Medical Center Lexington and Lexington Medical Center Irmo will be closed.
The Urgent Cares at those locations will remain open.
