Piedmont Healthcare (Atlanta) is planning to transform the former Doctors Hospital on the Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown in Columbus, Ga. The structure will become a freestanding children’s hospital named the Bill and Olivia Amos Children’s Hospital.

The 30-bed project will house a pediatric inpatient unit with several semiprivate sibling rooms. Additionally, the project includes isolation and behavioral safe rooms, a pediatric intensive care unit, and a pediatric intermediate care unit.

Support spaces include an activity room, laundry facilities, food pantry, room service dining, separate discharge area, and an outdoor playground.

A connection corridor linking to the Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown main hospital is also planned.

The five-floor facility, slated to open in fall 2024, will be funded by a donation from the Bettye and Cecil Cheves family.
