ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Roswell Park Care Network held a grand opening today for its newest and largest location: the 15,000-square-foot offices of Roswell Park Hematology Oncology Southtowns. The expanded and relocated practice brings specialty cancer care and supportive services to the community in and around Southern Erie county, provided by the region’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“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. The team includes several Roswell Park physicians with specialty training and experience:
- Adam Kotowski, MD
- Shashikant Lele, MD, FACOG
- Mariola Poss, MD, FACS
- Ilene Rothman, MD
- Yasar Shad, MD, FACP
“This is an outstanding team of experts who have dedicated their careers to serving cancer patients, all with years of experience and training in particular areas of oncology, with all of our care rigorously adhering to the guidelines that Roswell Park helps to establish as a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network,” says Dr. Shad, an oncologist/hematologist who serves as Medical Director of Roswell Park Hematology Oncology Southtowns.
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.
“Dr. Shad and the entire staff at Roswell Park Hematology Oncology Southtowns is courteous and makes office visits a pleasure, and in a beautiful and convenient location,” says Pamela D. Wiggins, a Lackawanna resident who has received care at the new facility. “They are a true example of what a visit to a medical provider should be.”
The practice, relocated from West Seneca, has operated as a member of the Roswell Park Care Network since 2016.
