In recent news, Lakewood Health System in Staples has announced the construction of a new state-of-the-art Lakewood Cancer Center. The addition, set to be completed by the summer of 2025, will be located just southwest of the clinic and features an in-house PET/CT scan machine and 14 infusion bays.
The decision to move forward with the 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 addition of a facility like the Cancer Center in a rural setting like Staples is unprecedented, benefiting both patients and healthcare workers. The center’s amenities include a dedicated reception and waiting area, with oncology case managers conveniently located within the new space for easy access to patients.
This project is a significant step for the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community.
