Serving Our Community for Over 200 Years

Piedmont Augusta (formerly University Hospital) serves the Augusta-Richmond County area and 25 counties across two states. The hospital is an 812-bed, acute-care facility and part of a multi-campus system that includes three hospitals, a heart and vascular center, prompt and primary care, three skilled-nursing facilities, home health and private physician offices. Founded in 1818 as City Hospital, Piedmont Augusta has since moved through four facilities to its present location, which opened in 1970, and includes its Summerville Campus on Wrightsboro Road.

Piedmont Augusta offers state-of-the-art, comprehensive medical and surgical care that includes emergency services, cardiovascular, orthopaedics, neuroscience, oncology, bariatrics and weight management, robotic surgery and women’s services. Our cardiovascular services include state-of-the-art treatments for advanced cardiac conditions – including the Left Ventricular Assist Device, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement and MitraClip for severe mitral valve regurgitation – and vascular conditions – such as the Fenestrated Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Graft and the Penumbra Indigo® System for minimally invasive clot removal in arteries and veins.
