In 2005, the Lexington Surgery Center, partnering with the vision of Dr. Andrew Moore, II, became the first surgery facility in the country to establish the cost free and volunteer program of Surgery on Sunday
, Inc (SOS). SOS provides outpatient surgical services to the working poor who do not meet the qualifications for medical assistance. The surgery is performed on the third Sunday of each month with an all volunteer staff at no cost to the patient. The template of this program has been the shining example for multiple sites for the SOS program in the country. The Lexington Surgery Center’s commitment to this program is unending with continued enthusiasm to provide safe surgical care to the needs of the community.
