Orchard Park, N.Y. (WBEN) - It was all smiles and a celebratory mood at the new Roswell Park Care Network facility grand opening on Orchard Park Road Thursday. The location is Roswell's newest and largest location.

The 15,000-square-foot offices of Roswell Park Hematology Oncology Southtowns expanded and relocated to the new parcel and the practice brings specialty cancer care and supportive services to the community in and around Southern Erie county.

“The hallmarks of Roswell Park care are quality, compassion and comprehensive attentiveness to the needs of every individual patient, and Roswell Park Hematology Oncology Southtowns means the people of this community can access all that close to home, in a comfortable, convenient and welcoming environment,” says Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center President and CEO Candace S. Johnson, PhD.

“We’ve never seen such a comprehensive array of clinical and supportive services available in any community oncology practice in this region,” adds Thomas Schwaab, MD, PhD, Roswell Park’s Chief of Strategy, Business Development and Outreach. “Our patients can count on quality-controlled, specialized care, care that doesn’t end when you finish treatment, and a full complement of services and resources.”

The location is served by a team of 15 nurses, medical assistants and administrative staff and by experts across several different areas of oncology and supportive care, including medical oncology, hematology, breast surgery, chemotherapy and infusion, dermatology, gynecology, cancer screening and survivorship, and an onsite Patient & Family Resource Center.

Radiation oncology services are also available nearby at Southtowns Radiation Oncology, a Roswell Park Care Network member site operated in collaboration with Buffalo Medical Group and Catholic Health.

The practice, relocated from West Seneca, has operated as a member of the Roswell Park Care Network since 2016. ­­­­­­
