Jul 25, 2017 Share

(ST. JOSEPH) – Van’s Health and Appearance Center has discontinued operations at their boutique location within the Marie Yeager Cancer Center. Since the Cancer Center opened six years ago, the Appearance Center has provided specialty comfort and cancer care products for men and women both during and after cancer treatment.  

“As a non-profit organization, Lakeland has a duty to evaluate services and to not duplicate what is already available in the community,” said Jann Totzke, Executive Director of Oncology Services, Lakeland Health. “Fortunately cancer patients still have access to appearance services in the community at locations such as Studio I, currently located on Paulmar Avenue in St. Joseph. Staff at Studio I provide breast prostheses and mastectomy apparel as well as compression garments, hair prostheses, hats, turbans, and more.”

Van's Medical Equipment of Lakeland specializes in products such as: hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, portable oxygen, nebulizers, CPAP/BIPAP, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs, lift chairs, patient lifts, bath safety, and compression stockings. Van’s will continue to offer their full line of home medical equipment at three locations within the community including their main office located at 323 W. Glenlord Road in St. Joseph as well as the Welcome Center at Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph and the first floor of the Lakeland Medical Suites in Niles.
