Cancer Treatment Centers of America is holding a job fair Tuesday for those interested in learning about job opportunities at the company’s newest facility in Newnan.
The career fair for the new southeast regional hospital will be held from noon until 8 p.m. at the Georgia International Convention Center, 2000 Convention Center Concourse, in College Park. The convention center charges a $10 parking fee.
The Newnan cancer center being built off Newnan Crossing Bypass across from Ashley Park is slated to open in August. It is expected to generate 500 new jobs and create an economic impact of $500 million during the first five years of the hospital’s operation in Newnan, according to hospital authorities.
The hospital is currently looking to fill the following positions: nursing (in-patient, out-patient, infusion, ICU and surgery), surgical technicians, rehabilitation therapists, respiratory therapists, sterile processing technicians and registered nurse case managers.
Also, the company is seeking management/supervisory positions in surgery, in-patient, nurse/house, quality/ risk and pharmacy.
All candidates will have a chance to speak with a CTCA representative. Selected candidates will proceed to a further in-depth interview at a later date. For a full position list and to submit an application, visit www.cancercenter.com/ newnan.
The Newnan facility will be CTCA’s fifth center. The others are located in Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa.
In remarks to area leaders and businesses earlier this year, Jac Counts, regional manager of strategic markets for Cancer Treatment Centers of America, said access to I-85 and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were major factors in choosing Coweta County.

“The south side was very appealing to us,” said Counts. CTCA’s new hospital is off Newnan Crossing Bypass adjacent to the Ashley Park lifestyle center. As part of the site selection process, CTCA officials brought in patients to review several potential Atlanta area locations. Newnan was the hands-down winner.

“They are coming to Newnan, Ga., and they will be staying at the hotels here and eating at the restaurants here,” Counts said. “And that goes for the caregivers as well.”

CTCA’s 226,000-square-foot, fully-digital hospital will focus exclusively on treating cancer. The hospital will offer 50 beds, ICU rooms, surgical suites, state-of-the-art radiation and infusion therapy departments, an on-site outpatient clinic, rehabilitation and physical therapy.
