In the upcoming summer of 2025, Lakewood Health System in Staples will officially announce the completion of its new Lakewood Cancer Center. The addition will consist of 19,270 square feet and will be located just southwest of the clinic, with a groundbreaking scheduled for spring.

The decision to build 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 feature advanced facilities such as 14 infusion bays, an in-house PET/CT scan machine, and other cutting-edge technology. The addition of a facility like the Cancer Center in a rural setting like Staples is unprecedented and will greatly benefit 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. This project is a significant step for the local healthcare system and will greatly benefit the community.
