Ms. Kasia KoniecznyProfile:
Providence Centralia Hospital and the Lewis County Cancer Center, is part of the Providence Regional Cancer System of Centralia, Olympia, Lacey, and Aberdeen WA, and provide a full range of inpatient and outpatient cancer services primarily to the people of Southwest Washington. Complete diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic services are provided through a 26 bed dedicated inpatient unit and at outpatient Providence Western Washington Oncology locations in Lacey, Centralia, and Aberdeen. At each of our locations, you’ll have access to the latest forms of chemotherapy and other anti-cancer drugs. You may also be eligible for investigational treatments that are part of a clinical trial.
Providence Centralia Hospital is a 107-bed, not-for-profit community-based hospital. A member of the largest health care provider in the West – Providence Health & Services – Providence Centralia has grown its services and technology to become the heart of medical care in Lewis County. As a community hospital with outstanding technology, Providence Centralia Hospital is large enough to provide state-of-the-art services such as comprehensive cancer care, sleep services, MRI, 64-sliced CT scans and digital mammography. The hospital is also small enough to offer personal, compassionate care, as recognized by our national scores on nurses’ communication, patient safety and patient satisfaction. Providence Centralia Hospital is the first two-time health care winner of the Washington State Quality Award and is committed to providing high-quality, safe services to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
The Lewis County Cancer Center, part of the Providence Regional Cancer System, opened its doors to patients in the summer of 2009. The $6 million, 21,000-square-foot center is a partnership between Providence and RadiantCare Radiation Oncology. It offers expanded chemotherapy and radiation therapy services for cancer patients in Lewis County. The new cancer center provides:
* Four private infusion suites with four IV infusion chairs in each suite
* Separate room for infusion patients requiring privacy or isolation
* Dedicated injection area
* Integrative care room with massage and acupuncture services
* Central nutrition area to provide patients with nourishment before, during and after treatment
Future plans for this cancer center call for increased screenings, education and survivorship programs. There is a dedicated space for integrative therapy—initially offering massage, acupuncture and naturopathy services.
We have a Cancer Registry, which is led by a Certified Cancer Registrar and consists of staff members who monitor all cancer patients diagnosed and/or treated at the hospital. The registry compiles statistical data, helps organize cancer program activities, and assists with prevention and treatment protocols. The registry provides a consistent, organized, systemic approach to lifetime follow-up of the cancer patient, which insures both the current and the future patient of the best cancer care available.
