University Hospital

University Hospital began in 1915 as a merger of Augusta's first City Hospital (1818) and Lamar Hospital, (which replaced the Freedman's Hospital for blacks) with the construction of a new facility. The Hospital was named University in recognition of the ongoing association with the Medical College. In the 1950's, the Medical College constructed its own teaching facility called Talmadge Hospital, which is now known as MCG Hospital (Medical College of Georgia).
