Effective Sept. 19, 2022, Augusta University Health is changing after-hours hospital access in an effort to enhance safety for patients and team members.

Between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. and on weekends/holidays, visitors will enter AU Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Georgia through Entrance F, which is located next to the Emergency Department on Harper Street. During these times, all other entrances will be closed (exit only). During after-hours and on weekends/holidays, AU Health Security will screen persons entering the hospital and escort them as needed.

Wayfinding signage will be placed at entrances to help patients and support persons navigate appropriately. Employees can continue to access all entrances with their employee badges.
