Lexington Medical Center is using bond issues totaling $170,189,000 through the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) to fund new capital projects and to refinance earlier projects at Lexington Medical Center (LMC).

The Hospital Revenue Bonds will be used to finance the cost of various capital projects, including the acquisition, construction and renovations of the hospital plus other healthcare facilities in the LMC network.
