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.


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]


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