Beaumont Hospital In Royal Oak Opening New Pediatric Emergency Center

  • $4 million pediatric center opens at Beaumont on Thursday
  • Beaumont expanded its cancer treatment program for adolescents and young adults
  • The center is housed on the second floor of the new Proton Therapy Center

Beaumont Health bolstered its pediatric services Thursday after opening the doors to its new Skandalaris Family Center for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak.

The $4 million clinic is housed on the second floor of the Beaumont Proton Therapy Center, which is the first of its kind in the state that opened in July.

Detroit-based NORR LLC handled design and Royal Oak-based Kasco Inc. built out the 9,130-square-foot space.

The center's seven exam rooms, a consultation room, family pantry and shared and private infusion rooms doubled the size of the pediatric hematology/oncology outpatient clinic, a news release said. It allowed Beaumont to expand its clinical trials for adolescents and young adults, which has helped ease the cancer mortality rate, it said in the release.

Kate Gowans, M.D., leads the staff of 15 that includes oncology-certified nurses, pediatric oncology pharmacists, certified child life specialists in reducing anxiety, educational liaison and nutrition experts.

"Proton therapy offers the greatest benefit to younger cancer patients, whose growing bodies are more vulnerable to the side effects of traditional radiation therapy," the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology head said in a statement. "Proton therapy allows for even more precision than before, without affecting nearby organs."
