In the spring of 2025, Lakewood Health System in Staples will officially open its new 19,270 square-foot Lakewood Cancer Center. The expansion is a significant step for the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community. The addition of a facility like this in a rural setting like Staples is unprecedented, making it an exceptional development for both patients and healthcare workers.
The decision to move forward with the Cancer Center was made due to Lakewood’s significant growth in oncology services over the past two years. There has also been an increase in provider coverage, making an expansion necessary. The state-of-the-art Cancer Center will feature 14 infusion bays, an in-house PET/CT scan machine, and other advanced facilities that will provide top quality care to patients.
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. This addition is sure to make life easier for those seeking cancer treatments and support in a rural setting like Staples.
Lakewood Health System announced the construction of its new Lakewood Cancer Center last month. The project is set to be completed by summer 2025 and will significantly benefit both patients and healthcare workers in rural areas like Staples.
