"I love that Augusta Health is a small, independent hospital. I believe this allows us to connect more personally with our patients in comparison to larger facilities, and our environment allows our staff to be more united."
Kira, BSN, RN – Clinical Coordinator
One of the primary reasons Augusta Health is such a great place to work is our collaborative, congenial and caring team. Our people are highly engaged and committed to quality and our community. School fairs, football games, community events – we're there to provide support. You could say we're integrated in our community and are happy to have the opportunity to take care of our neighbors, family and friends.
Independent and one of a kind
Locally owned and governed, and one of only five independent hospitals in the Commonwealth of Virginia, we can make the best decisions for the care of our community. We are not a cookie-cutter hospital owned by a large system. We are committed to being ourselves and being the best that we can be.
