The Lexington Clinic, Central Kentucky’s oldest and largest group practice, celebrates its 100th anniversary this month as construction of a new flagship facility is slated to open next year.
Founded on July 1, 1920 by a group of physicians who came together to form a multi-specialty medical group, the Lexington Clinic has celebrated a number of firsts throughout its history, including the founding of the first radiology department in Lexington in the 1920s, developing the first cardiac care unit in Lexington in the 1960s and performing the first thoracic ablation surgery in 2006.
âOur journey began 100 years ago and continues today as we strive to provide the best care for our patients by keeping them at the center of everything we do,â said Dr. Andrew Henderson, CEO from the Lexington Clinic. âWe have faced many challenges, disruptions and uncertainties, but we have stood the test of time thanks to our hardworking physicians and staff. “
Today, the Lexington Clinic has more than 200 providers in 30 different specialties, with more than 25 sites in central Kentucky.
âAlthough the Lexington Clinic has had to postpone plans to celebrate this milestone due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is still pursuing plans to build its new South Broadway building, which will replace the current flagship of the Lexington Clinic which has served the community since 1957, âsaid Henderson.
