COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus Regional Health has debuted its new birthing center named after Olivia Amos.

Amos was the face of the center until she passed away.

The unit has 12 labor rooms and three operating rooms.

Everything in the center from the rooms, walls, floors, and counters is completely new.

Bettye Cheves, the daughter of Olivia Amos, says it’s all about making sure mothers have the best care.

“Bringing in a new life is the greatest thing that a woman can do if she is prevailed to do that. To have a safe comfortable and nice place that makes you smile is a pretty awesome so I think it's a tribute to women everywhere to come here to have their babies,” said Bettye Cheves, daughter of Olivia Amos.

This event was meant to show people they can stay in Columbus and still get state of the art care.
