On Monday, Jan. 27, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced that Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of five hospitals that treat patients fighting complex and advanced-stage cancer, has selected Boca Raton as the site for its corporate headquarters. The company expects to employ 225 full-time staff, including executives who relocated from its current headquarters in suburban Chicago, and new hires. Several office sites are currently under evaluation. A release from the governor’s office said, “Florida's favorable business climate, coupled with the quality of life offered to residents of Boca Raton, and its proximity to three international airports, factored heavily in the company's decision to relocate.”
"Selecting Boca Raton as our new corporate headquarters represents a major step in positioning Cancer Treatment Centers of America to serve even more patients in the future, while simultaneously providing our dedicated and valued employees with exciting opportunities for further personal and professional development," said CTCA President and CEO Gerard van Grinsven. "We deeply appreciate the support we received from the State of Florida, the City of Boca Raton, Palm Beach County and its Business Development Board, under the leadership of President and CEO Kelly Smallridge, in coming to this decision. We also want to acknowledge the special efforts of Florida Governor Rick Scott and Enterprise Florida for their assistance with our evaluation of the benefits associated with our relocation."
