CUMBERLAND, Md. - Gov. Martin O'Malley says the commercial internet provider NWT Enterprises plans to create dozens, if not hundreds of jobs at the former Sacred Heart Hospital campus in Cumberland.

O'Malley announced the company's purchase of the complex Monday.

He says Cumberland-based NWT plans to establish a data center on the site and lease space on the campus to other information technology companies.

O'Malley says NWT anticipates creating 40 to 60 jobs initially, with perhaps 400 to 500 jobs over the next five years.

The governor says the project is the culmination of two years of assistance by the Department of Business and Economic Development and Maryland Department of Transportation.
