The Georgia Community Health Department has approved a certificate of need for Cancer Treatment Centers of America to build and operate its fifth regional treatment center in Newnan, Ga. After it's completed, the fully digital hospital will span more than 200,000 square feet and is expected to have 50 inpatient beds.

In a news release, Cancer Treatment Centers of America said it expects more than two-thirds of its patients to come from outside the state, which could result in 500 new jobs and about $500 million in economic activity in the first five years of operation.
“Cancer patients throughout the Southeast asked us to build a facility closer to them and with the support of the Georgia General Assembly, Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Coweta County Development Authority and Board of Commissions, and the City of Newnan, we're one step closer to making that a reality,” Bob Mayo, vice chairman of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, said in a news release.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a national network that serves patients with advanced cancer from all 50 states at facilities in suburban Chicago, Philadelphia, suburban Phoenix and Tulsa.
