The most recent Healthcare Annual Report was launched at a reception with key community leaders at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan. Both CTCA and the new Piedmont Newnan Hospital opened in 2012, and HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital opened in 2014. Leaders from all three hospitals were on hand for the latest Healthcare Annual Report launch.
The Chamber had print copies of the report available for Chamber leaders to use in their business’s own marketing and sales efforts. A digital version of the report is also available for sharing.
