Trinity Hospital (formerly known as St. Joseph Hospital), is a private Roman Catholic tertiary care facility located in Augusta, Georgia. The hospital is known for its comprehensive diagnostic services, including cardiac catheterization, magnetic resonance imaging, and osteoporosis treatment.

History[edit]

Trinity Hospital opened in 1952 as St. Joseph Hospital. The hospital had 110 licensed beds at the time.[1] It quickly grew to its present day size of about 231 licensed beds and became known for pioneering many medical firsts. Among them include cochlear hearing implants, stereotactic mammography, and a unique treatment program for hip and knee replacement.

Trinity was sold by its owner, Ascension Health, to Triad Hospitals in 2006.[2] Triad merged with Community Health Systems in 2007.[3]

Impact[edit]

Trinity Hospital employs over 1,000 people.[1]
