Ribbon cutting held for AU Imaging and Children’s Hospital Pediatric Multispecialty

Augusta University Health and the Metro-Augusta Chamber of Commerce officially opened AU Health Imaging and Children’s Hospital of Georgia Pediatric Multispecialty with dual ribbon-cutting ceremonies Nov. 4.

The two clinics, located at 3722 Wheeler Road, bring expanded services with the same quality of care as the downtown medical center to a more convenient location on the Richmond-Columbia county line.

“We’re here to provide outstanding educational opportunities for our students and the most cutting edge, high quality, compassionate care for our patients that we possibly can. And the best way for us to carry out that role, especially as it relates to our patients, is to be where our patients live,” said Augusta University President Brooks A. Keel, PhD. “So it was hugely important to us to expand out well beyond what we call the mothership — downtown — and be out in the neighborhoods where our patients live.”
