Lakewood Health Clinic in Staples to Welcome Cancer Center in 2022

Last month, Lakewood Health System in Staples officially announced the completion of its new Lakewood Cancer Center by the summer of 2025. The addition is a 19,270 square-foot space located just southwest of the clinic, with a groundbreaking scheduled for spring.

The decision to move forward with the Cancer Center was driven by the significant growth of Lakewood’s oncology team and services over the past two years. Additionally, there has been an increase in provider coverage, making an expansion necessary.

The state-of-the-art Cancer Center will feature advanced facilities including 14 infusion bays and an in-house PET/CT scan machine. The addition of such a facility in a rural setting like Staples is unprecedented and will benefit both patients and healthcare workers alike.

Among its amenities, the Cancer Center will have a dedicated reception and waiting area with conveniently located oncology case managers for easy access to patients. This project is a significant step for local healthcare and will greatly benefit the community.
