University of West Georgia
Newnan, Coweta County
When the historic Newnan hospital campus was vacated in 2012, a partnership between the City of Newnan, the hospital board, and the Georgia Board of Regents formed to rehabilitate the site into the new home of the University of West Georgia’s satellite campus, with a focus on expanding the University’s nursing program. While preserving the historic character of the building, the hospital was converted into a modern educational facility. Repurposing the hospital’s original operating rooms as science lab space with restored original facility lighting further enhances the school’s prominent nursing program.
