Georgia Regents Medical Center

Georgia Regents Medical Center, previously known as Medical College of Georgia Hospital and Clinics in reference to the longtime Medical College of Georgia, is the name for Augusta's most comprehensive medical facilities following the controversial merger of Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University to become Georgia Regents University

Georgia Regents Medical Center,  the area's top trauma hospital and centerpiece of the clinical arm of Georgia Regents University, delivers the most advanced medical care available and leads a team of physicians, nurses, therapists, pharmacists and others who are highly trained in their specialties and inpatient- and family-centered care. All its physicians are board-certified or board-eligible.

In addition to the 483-bed Georgia Regents Medical Center, the health system includes a 149-bed Children's Hospital of Georgia, an Ambulatory Care Center with more than 80 outpatient clinics in one setting, the Georgia Radiation Therapy Center and a Specialized Care Center housing a 13-county Level I regional trauma center. The health system completed work on its $31 million outpatient Cancer Center in 2010.

In addition to providing care in the Augusta area, Georgia Regents Medical Center physicians travel to more than 90 satellite clinics across the state and region.

Georgia Regents Medical Center: 1120 15th St., Augusta, (706) 721-CARE (2273).
