May 5, 2019

A major burn center in Georgia will soon get even larger.

Doctors Hospital in Augusta is embarking on a $75 million expansion of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center.

Hospital officials say it will double the number of patient rooms as well as build a six-level, 550-space parking deck.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that the project is the largest investment at the hospital since it was built in 1973.

Doctors Hospital CEO Doug Welch says a new three-story tower will allow for all burn and wound patients to be treated under a single roof. The 70 beds dedicated to burn and wound patients have been in three separate areas of the hospital.

The Joseph M. Still Burn Center treats patients from throughout the South.
