Open House to celebrate new Poulsbo outpatient cancer care center - 6/24/2009

Harrison Medical Center’s new one-stop medical oncology and chemotherapy center in Poulsbo specifically meets the unique needs of cancer patients. The focus on organic flow, warm color, and comforting design creates a refined environment of hope and healing—all with a view.

Harrison Poulsbo Hematology & Oncology center will provide hospital-based outpatient cancer care, including:

  • Modern chemotherapy treatments (10 chairs)
  • Onsite laboratory
  • Exam rooms (6)
  • Patient navigators
  • Nutritional medicine
  • Support services and resources
  • Complementary therapies

Location, location, location matters most when cancer patients need frequent treatments and care. Harrison Poulsbo Hematology & Oncology center is conveniently located off State Route 305. Patients living on the north end of Kitsap County, Bainbridge Island, Port Ludlow, Port Townsend, and beyond, now will have much closer access to our outpatient cancer services and amenities.

“We’re providing comprehensive cancer care close to home,” says Ken Rarey, director of Radiation and Poulsbo Oncology. “At this new center, we have the ability to provide whole-person care in an outpatient setting. This is a healing environment in your own community.”

We invite our local community members to meet our oncology caregivers, learn about our advanced services, and tour this soothing new space.
