Our History

In 1976 Health Center Credit Union (HCCU), was chartered by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance. HCCU opened its first office in the Murphy Building at the Medical College of Georgia (GRU). Branch two was opened in 1987 at St. Joseph Hospital (Trinity Hospital) and branch three followed that same year at Augusta State University (GRU). With the addition of the MCG (GRU) Annex and Evans offices, we have 5 locations in Richmond and Columbia Counties to serve our members.

What is a Credit Union?

Credit unions are not-for-profit member-owned financial institutions operated for the benefit of its membership. According to the treasurer of a Midwestern credit union after the Depression, credit unions were "not for profit, not for charity, but for service" which is still true today. Credit unions offer reduced loan rates, pay higher dividends on savings and additional earnings are redistributed to members in the form of new products and services. Membership eligibility requirements are contained in the credit union's charter, and the volunteer board of directors are elected from the field of membership.
