'Destination cancer hospital' gets Georgia Senate approval
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 28, 2008

The Illinois-based Cancer Treatment Centers of America has been lobbying hard to construct a cancer center in Georgia, but had been blocked by the state's "certificate of need" rule. The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce had opposed CTCA's expansion and pushed lawmakers to insulate Georgia's hospitals from competition.
