INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis-based Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers is again growing in Georgia. The provider is opening a clinic in Macon, with plans to ultimately grow its footprint to 11 total centers throughout the state.

Hopebridge says the center will create 55 jobs and serve about 50 patients in Macon-Bibb county. The facility will provide diagnostic evaluations as well as occupational, speech and feeding therapy. It will also feature therapy rooms, a mock classroom, a gym, kitchens and interactive play space.

The new clinic will be Hopebridge's 33rd location. It has clinics in Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky and Ohio. Last month, Hopebridge announced plans for two new centers in Kennesaw and Marietta, Georgia.?
