A Commitment to Quality Care.
At Our Hospital and Around the Corner.
Behind the success of every nationally ranked hospital is a group of dedicated medical professionals who serve patients in primary care practices, specialty clinics, and outpatient venues. What sets apart the physicians and mid-level providers of Augusta Medical Group is their commitment to offering community-wide access to high-quality care and holistic treatment. Established in 2008, the hospital-owned Augusta Medical Group is an essential part Augusta Health's tradition of innovation, and its members guided the hospital's recent expansion of urgent care centers and convenient care clinics in the Greater Augusta County service area.
In a perpetual effort to bring coordinated, collaborative health care to patients throughout the community and to supplement Augusta Health's private practices, Augusta Medical Group and its services continue to grow and diversify:
- Six convenient family practice/internal medicine practices in neighborhoods from Verona to Lexington
- Two urgent care and three convenient care clinics with extended evening and weekend hours
- Membership includes more than 50 physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who work in the hospital or nearby on its medical center campus — their specialties include cardiology, oncology, gastroenterology, infectious disease, diabetes, occupational medicine, and more; 20 hospitalists at Augusta Health are employed by Augusta Medical Group, and total group membership is near 70
- Active recruitment of top-notch medical professionals who are passionate about community health care and know the value of smoothly coordinating patient treatment with a respected hospital
