Cancer Treatment Centers of America—on an afternoon when Chicago was enduring 2 degrees above zero temperatures while Boca Raton, Fla., was enjoying 78-degree weather—announced it is moving its national headquarters from the Chicago area to that city in the Sunshine State. CTCA is expected to employ 225 people in Florida.
CTCA executives will be relocating from its suburban Chicago location in Schaumburg, Ill. No date has been given for when the company will move.
The five-hospital national network has facilities in Goodyear, Ariz.; Newnan, Ga.; Philadelphia; Tulsa, Okla.; and Zion, Ill.
The decision to relocate to Boca Raton was based on the “favorable business climate,” closeness to three airports, and other factors determined as helping CTCA to accelerate investment in talent, technology and other resources, according to a news release from Florida Gov. Rick Scott's office.
Gerard van Grinsven, CTCA president and CEO, said in the release that the Boca Raton location provided company employees “exciting opportunities for further personal and professional development.”
