The Lakewood Health System in Staples has recently announced the construction of a new 19,270 square-foot addition to its cancer center. This project, which is set to be completed by the summer of 2025, will feature advanced facilities such as 14 infusion bays and an in-house PET/CT scan machine.
The decision to move forward with this expansion was driven by 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 it necessary for the healthcare system to expand its facilities.
This state-of-the-art cancer center will benefit both patients and healthcare workers alike. Among its amenities, it will have a dedicated reception and waiting area, with oncology case managers conveniently located within the new space for easy access to patients. This addition is a significant step for the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community.
