$31.5M ASC expansion set to open in North Carolina

Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Health is opening a newly expanded ASC at West Columbia, N.C.-based Lexington Medical Center in September, according to the Triad Business Journal.

The expansion comprises 26,500 square feet and includes four operating rooms, and a 10 bay post-anesthesia care unit. Physicians at the multispecialty center perform joint replacement, ophthalmology and general surgery procedures.

"The Lexington community has needed and deserved a new surgical facility for quite some time so this project allows people in Davidson County and the surrounding areas to continue to receive a full range of convenient, high-quality and specialized care and treatment close to home," Julie Freischlag, MD, Wake Forest Baptist Health CEO told the Triad Business Journal.
