Community oncology clinic relocates to continue providing enhanced cancer care to Wake County.
CARY, N.C., (August 2, 2022) – Community oncology practice Waverly Hematology Oncology (Waverly) announces the relocation of its clinic to 210 Ashville Avenue, Suite 440, in Cary effective August 1, 2022. The clinic will begin seeing patients, new and existing, starting August 2, 2022, at the new location.
“Our relocation comes from our steadfast growth and commitment to providing our patients with an environment that allows us to be patient-centered in our care approach,” said Dr. Mark Graham, leading medical oncologist and hematologist at Waverly. “We have been a part of Wake County for 18 years and are honored to continue serving our town and patients at our new clinic.”
Waverly’s new location, which is only a two-minute drive from the practice’s current location, is situated in the Medical Park of Cary, which houses other healthcare practices including complimentary care and services for oncology patients. The space has been designed specifically for delivering personalized cancer care to oncology and hematology patients.
“Great dedication has been taken during the setup process to ensure the space is well equipped to treat multiple cancer diagnoses and is an environment that inspires healing and wellness,” said Graham. “Cancer treatment can be an uncomfortable experience and physically and mentally taxing for patients, their families and their caregivers. We want to ensure that everyone who walks into our clinic feels a sense of peace and at home, which is the beauty and mission of community oncology.”
Waverly is a partner of the American Oncology Network (AON), which is an expanding network of community oncology practices across the United States. Since 2004, the clinic has offered medical oncology, chemotherapy, infusion therapy, laboratory services and an on-site pharmacy.
The practice also houses the oldest cancer genetics clinic in the county and is home to the area’s first formal cancer Survivor Clinic that serves over 2,000 breast cancer survivors and those at high risk for developing the disease. These services will continue to be available at the new location.
“We extend our appreciation to and applaud Waverly Hematology Oncology for their unwavering commitment to their community,” said AON Chief Executive Officer Todd Schonherz. “The relocation of their practice to a space that helps them deliver top-notch cancer care and treatment exemplifies their dedication to their patients as well as their mission to enhancing oncology in Cary and the surrounding communities.”
