We are recognized for our commitment to patient care. Our accreditations let patients
know that they can trust us with providing the complex care they need. We offer:
A Comprehensive Stroke Center
Emergency physicians are able to rapidly assess and diagnosis stroke, working closely
with Neurologists and Interventionalists to provide immediate access to advanced therapies
including thrombolytics and catheter-based treatment.
Our Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center is accredited by The Joint Commission, providing stroke patients with the highest quality of care available in the area.
A Chest Pain Center
Emergency physicians can quickly assess and diagnose heart attacks. We work closely
with cardiologists to provide rapid diagnosis and treatment, including immediate access to catheter-based
therapy such as angioplasty.
We are fully equipped to receive all cardiac patients for treatment at Augusta University
Medical Center. We were the first hospital in the region to receive national accreditation
as a Chest Pain Center with PCI and Resuscitation by the American College of Cardiology.
The Highest Level Trauma Center
We care for more than 1,500 trauma patients each year. Emergency Department physicians
work closely with the trauma team and other surgical specialists, to provide sophisticated
resuscitation and definitive care to patients. AU Health has the only American College
of Surgeons verified Level I Adult Trauma Center and Level II Pediatric Trauma Center in the region.
