History[edit]

Newnan Hospital was founded in 1836, 10 years after Newnan was founded. It served as a first aid site during Sherman's March to the Sea.That facility was faced with competition in 1965 by Coweta County General Hospital (where PNH was previously located). By The start of the 21st century CCGH was in bankruptcy and needed help. In 2000, Emory Healthcare bought a 50% ownership of CCGH from the current owner Hospital Corporation of America, headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee and made it Emory-Peachtree Regional Hospital, the first Emory hospital south of I-285, which is what made it regional. In 2004, Newnan Hospital bought EPRH in 2004 after EPRH filed Chapter 13. By 2006, Piedmont was considering a sister hospital to Fayette Community. By December, they bought Newnan Hospital West Campus, as it was called. In 2012, the hospital moved from its Hospital Road location to a new facility located at 745 Poplar Rd, Newnan, GA 30265.
