Oncology (Cancer Care)

 

At Lakewood Health System, your cancer care is coordinated through your family medicine provider, in partnership with oncology specialists from the Essentia Health St. Joseph Cancer Center in Brainerd.

The difficult diagnosis of cancer can create a ripple effect of negative feelings and situations, but with the support and programs available to you at Lakewood Health System, we strive to make your treatment as easy as possible. In addition to a peaceful, relaxing therapy space, Lakewood Health System has a variety of resources and information to help during your therapy. Ask your infusion therapy nurse about arranging appointments during your therapy sessions.

Representatives from each department, such as social work, spiritual care, dietary and financial services, are available to meet with you to answer questions and provide access to specialized services designed to help you relax and heal.
