Coweta County - Healthcare

Accelerated Growth for Cancer Treatment Center

In August 2012, Cancer Treatment Centers of America opened its fifth and newest regional destination hospital outside Atlanta in Newnan, Ga. A recent study by the Center for Business and Economics Research at the University of West Georgia Richards College of Business found that the hospital’s economic impact vastly exceeded expectations, generating generated $893 million in economic activity in Georgia, and $659 million in Coweta County alone.

The facility, which opened with nearly 200 employees, now employs more than 1,000 – in addition to more than 200 physicians across specialties – greatly surpassing its initial projection of 500 employees over the first five years of operation. Coweta County’s close proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the amenities in the community and the strong quality of life helped in the decision-making process.
