The Lakewood Health System in Staples has 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 advanced facilities including 14 infusion bays and an in-house PET/CT scan machine.
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 addition of a facility like the Cancer Center in a rural setting like Staples is unprecedented, benefiting both patients and healthcare workers. 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.
