Our Award-Winning Facility
Winner of the 1998 and 2000 Modern Healthcare Magazine and American Institute of Architects Academy Design Awards for Health Care Facilities
Children's Hospital of Georgia was designed for children and their families--with their input. Stanley, Beaman & Sears, Inc., an Atlanta-based architectural firm specializing in the design of children's hospitals and women's healthcare facilities, was awarded the contract to design the 220,000-square-foot children's hospital on Harper Street in April 1994. The new facility has been built at the site of the former School of Nursing and Richmond County Health Department buildings. The children's hospital was formerly housed primarily on the eighth floor of Augusta University Medical Center.
Children's Hospital of Georgia has an emergency room, operating suite, admissions process, laboratories and parking. A 16-bed pediatric intensive care unit and 88 medical/surgical beds are designed for the developmental age of the child, and include an infant and toddler unit, school-age unit and adolescent unit. The children's hospital is connected floor-by-floor to Augusta University Medical Center and Clinics, where other pediatric services are located including outpatient facilities, including a 36-bed neonatal intensive care unit, a 14-bed child psychiatry unit and a 16-bed perinatal intensive care unit. This brings the total number of beds to 154. In addition, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, or CHOG, connects to the five-story Augusta University Medical Office Building, where most general, specialty and subspecialty clinics for pediatric patients are located on the third floor.
