Lakewood Health System in Staples has officially announced the construction of a new 19,270 square-foot addition to its Lakewood Cancer Center. The project, set to be completed by the summer of 2025, will feature 14 infusion bays, an in-house PET/CT scan machine and other advanced facilities.
The decision to move forward with the Cancer Center 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 state-of-the-art Cancer Center will benefit both patients and healthcare workers in a rural setting like Staples. 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 the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community.
