Lakewood Health System in Staples has announced the official launch of its 19,270 square-foot addition to the Lakewood Cancer Center, set to be completed by the summer of 2025. This state-of-the-art facility, which will be located just southwest of the clinic, is a significant step for the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community.
The decision to move forward with this project was made due to the significant growth of Lakewood’s oncology team and services over the past two years. Additionally, there has been a steady increase in provider coverage, making an expansion necessary. The new Cancer Center will feature 14 infusion bays, an in-house PET/CT scan machine, and other advanced facilities.
Among its amenities, the Cancer Center will have a dedicated reception and waiting area, with oncology case managers conveniently located within the new space for easy access to patients. The project is a significant step for Lakewood Health System and demonstrates their commitment to providing quality healthcare services to rural communities like Staples.
