Augusta University to Open Imaging, Pediatric Multispecialty Clinics
To better serve patients, Augusta University is opening a new care center on Wheeler Road.
The new building at 3722 Wheeler Road — less than a mile from I-20 — will house two clinics: AU Health Imaging and Children’s Hospital of Georgia Pediatric Multispecialty.
“We put (AU Health Imaging) here to make it more convenient for people in the larger metropolitan area and surrounding communities, including Columbia County,” said Dr. Annette Johnson, chair of the department of radiology and imaging. “So we positioned the new center just off of I-20, right on the Richmond-Columbia County line.”
The independent diagnostic testing facility will offer expanded imaging services with a radiologist on site. It includes two MRIs, a CT scanner, two ultrasound machines, a 3D mammogram machine, X-ray and DEXA, which measures bone density.
The pediatric multispecialty clinic will offer a variety of subspecialties in one convenient location. Services include pediatric neurology, pediatric nephrology, pediatric hematology, pediatric cardiology, pediatric pulmonology, pediatric endocrinology, and pediatric GI.
“It will have the same Children’s Hospital of Georgia-level care, just in a different location that is aiming to better serve patients and make it more efficient for them,” said Dr. Valera Hudson, chair of the department of pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.
The imaging clinic will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the pediatric clinic will be open 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. 706-721-5437. email@example.com.
