Under the direction of community, medical and religious leaders, St. Joseph Hospital opened in 1952 with only 110 beds. The Catholic hospital quickly grew to more than 231 beds and became known for pioneering many medical firsts, including cochlear hearing implants, stereotactic mammography, and a unique treatment program for hip and knee replacements.
Now known as Trinity Hospital of Augusta, the faith-based hospital with nearly 1,000 employees, is a part of Community Health Systems. Still the small hospital on the hill, Trinity Hospital of Augusta continues to set the highest standards of healthcare. From caring for the community through Hospice, to educational programs designed to meet your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, Trinity Hospital of Augusta is here for Augusta. And here for life.
