For more than 122 years, Lancaster Regional Medical Center (LRMC) has been a health care organization dedicated to Lancaster County. Why should you choose LRMC over another hospital? Because as a full service medical facility with community hospital values, at LRMC you are a person first and a patient second. That's the LRMC difference - quality care in a compassionate atmosphere. Our highly skilled team consists of your friends and neighbors and is made up of more than 680 employees, 500 physicians and 500 volunteers.
We remain at the forefront of today's medical breakthroughs. In the past several years, LRMC has invested over $25 million in facility improvements and advanced medical technology. Here are just a few highlights:
Trained surgeons using the daVinci® Si Surgical System, the world's most advanced surgical system, to offer patients less invasive surgery with smaller incisions, quicker recovery time and smaller scars.
Lancaster Regional is the first and only hospital in Central PA to offer MAKOplasty® Partial Knee Resurfacing and Total Hip Arthroplasty. It is a minimally invasive, innovative surgical option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. It is powered by the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, which allows for consistently reproducible precision.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming nearly 600,000 lives each year. Cardiac procedures including bypass and cardiac stent placement are among the most common major medical procedures provided by the U.S. health care system, with more than 1 million procedures performed annually. When it is you or someone you care about that is need of heart care, you want to find a facility you can trust.
LRMC is a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care as awarded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Research shows that Blue Distinction Centers demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients, with lower rates of complications following cardiac procedures and lower rates of healthcare associated infections compared with their peers. These are significant milestones for LRMC’s comprehensive Cardiac Care Network.
We offer a full range of cardiac care services, including inpatient cardiac care, cardiac rehabilitation, cardiac catheterization and cardiac surgery (including coronary artery bypass graft surgery). If your physician has recommended you receive a diagnostic catheterization, stenting or balloon angioplasty procedure, our newest Flat Detector Cardiovascular X-ray Imager offers exceptional image quality and a safer procedure with little or no scar.
Rest assured that you are experiencing imaging at its very best, by highly skilled, specialized technologists who adhere to the strictest of standards - from digital mammograms to PET and CT scans to simple x-rays. Better quality images mean improved diagnostic capabilities for our physicians and better treatment for our patients. And we offer six convenient locations for most of these services.
We recognize that being a good neighbor means remaining active in the health of our community. We offer health education, screenings, support groups and needed programs and services like a dedicated and compassionate inpatient Behavioral Health Unit and an active Spiritual Services Program.
