Nursing Recognition

LMC Gold was established in 2006 to honor nurses at Lexington Medical Center who exemplify excellence in practice and commitment to the nursing profession.

These nurses characterize the very best of the nursing profession. To be nominated and selected for LMC Gold means these individuals reach beyond everyday practice to ensure their patients receive no less than the very best of care. Their drive and determination, their compassion and commitment define who they are and what they strive to accomplish as nurses.

Professional Practice Model

Lexington Medical Center's professional practice model (PPM) is guided by adherence to the American Nurses Association Scope and Standards of Practice, Code of Ethics and Social Policy. The flame representing Nurse-Patient Synergy is a reminder that the patient is the central focus and purpose for our work. The torch base illustrates the core values that guide the way we deliver care and interact with others. And the arch symbolizes a healthy work environment and how Lexington Medical Center empowers and supports Professional Nursing Practice.

The red and orange swirling flame is labelled nurse-patient synergy, while the torch is made from two vertical pillars for the core values of quality and teamwork, held aloft by three additional pillars for compassion, responsibility, and integrity.
