Augusta VA Medical CenterThe Augusta VA Medical Center (VAMC) proudly offers quality health care to our nation's veterans. The Augusta VAMC primary service area includes 17 counties in Georgia and seven counties in South Carolina; but as a member of the Atlanta Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN7), veterans who live as far away as Alabama may be cared for in the Augusta VAMC. 

The Augusta VAMC is a two-division medical center which provides tertiary care in medicine, surgery, neurology,psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, and spinal cord injury. The Downtown Division adjacent to the Augusta University has 155 beds (52 medicine, 37 surgery, six neurology, and 60 spinal cord injury). The Augusta VAMC serves as a network resource for the treatment of spinal cord injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychiatry patients.

The Augusta VAMC prides itself on continually improving and expanding its health care knowledge. The VAMC fully supports, as part of its mission, graduate medical education. The use of the Augusta VAMC as a training site for MCG Residents has a long history, and the affiliation between the Augusta VAMC and Augusta University may be one of the older ones in the entire VA system. The Augusta VAMC's participation in this affiliation not only helps fulfill an education mission but also contributes to a high level of care provided to veteran patients. Medical residents are involved in nearly every aspect and phase of the care of medical and dental patients offered at the Augusta VAMC.

University Health SystemUniversity Hospital has served the medical needs of the Augusta community since 1818. From 1828 until 1956 it was the primary teaching hospital for the Medical College and subsequent to 1956, with the opening of the Eugene Talmadge Memorial Hospital, University Hospital and its medical staff has maintained a teaching affiliation with the Medical College for both undergraduate and postgraduate medical programs. Now, almost two hundred years old, University Hospital has emerged as a multifaceted community not-for-profit health care system, offering a comprehensive and integrated range of health care services to those throughout the Augusta-area and beyond.

The University Health Care System is anchored by the 612-bed University Hospital, the second largest hospital in Georgia. Its Medical Staff numbers more than 600 physicians representing every medical and surgical specialty and provides comprehensive acute care services. More than 21,000 patients are admitted, 3,000 babies delivered, and 100,000 patients treated in the Emergency Department annually. Other services include Women's Health, Behavioral Health, Laboratory Outreach, Nutrition, Rehabilitation, and Rape Crisis & Sexual Assault Services. University Hospital also has service agreements with nine affiliate hospitals located throughout the Central Savannah River A rea.

The Medical College affiliation with University Hospital enhances the training of undergraduate and postgraduate students by incorporating into their experiences real life community services provided by privately practicing community physicians. It demonstrates those services which they will be expected to provide upon completion of their training. The affiliation also demonstrates to students and residents how vital community services evolve in a changing healthcare environment in order to improve the health of citizens of our community.
