Swedish Health Services will open its new outpatient cancer center at the Edmonds campus on Monday, April 1, 2013.
Swedish said in a press release the new facility was planned in response to the growing need for medical oncology and infusion (chemotherapy) services in the south Snohomish and north King County area. The new two-story, 17,102-square-foot facility is anticipated to care for as many as 175 patients each day and provide increased access to cancer-care services for people living north of Seattle.
The center, which is located at 21632 Highway 99 in Edmonds, will provide high-quality and comprehensive medical oncology services to patients through an infusion unit, laboratory, pharmacy, and access to Swedish’s electronic medical record system. As a hospital-based department, patients will also have access to social work, support groups, American Cancer Society navigation and resources, financial counseling, cancer-specific patient education classes, and an education/resource wall.
The new cancer center at Swedish/Edmonds will open for community tours Wednesday, April 17 from 4-7 p.m.
Design-build firm, RAD Technology Medical Systems – a specialty modular health-care contractor – collaborated with design architects Perkins + Will to develop the modular building comprised of 29 factory-built units, which were erected on the site over just two days in December of last year. Skanska USA was responsible for the site development.
