Rex Hematology Oncology Associates of Garner Offers New Option for Patients

New Practice Now Open to Provide Crucial and Convenient Cancer Care Closer to Home

RALEIGH, N.C. – Rex Healthcare announces the opening of Rex Hematology Oncology Associates of Garner, bringing comprehensive cancer care closer to home for residents of southern Wake County, Johnston County and surrounding areas.

The new practice is led by medical oncologist/hematologist Dr. Brendan D. McNulty and features private and semi-private chemotherapy infusion bays, lab services and more. Dr. McNulty most recently practiced at a satellite cancer center outside of Boston for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

"I'm excited to join Rex's renowned clinical team and help develop this sophisticated cancer clinic," Dr. McNulty said. "Cancer diagnosis and treatment are difficult enough, and we can go a long way in easing the burden on patients by providing state-of-the-art care closer to home."

The practice makes innovative cancer treatments more convenient for patients and collaborates with the teams at Rex Cancer Center in Raleigh, as well as the N.C. Cancer Hospital and UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center in Chapel Hill. The new practice adds to Rex's continuum of care already present in nearby communities. Rex offers radiation cancer treatment at Clayton Radiation Oncology and Smithfield Radiation Oncology, a joint partnership between Johnston Health and Rex/UNC Health Care.

"We are pleased to provide patients with easier access to oncology and hematology services and to offer the expertise and experience of a compassionate physician like Dr. McNulty," said Vickie Byler, director of Rex Cancer Center.

Dr. McNulty earned his medical degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, completed his residency in internal medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and attended the Brown University Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program. Following his training, Dr. McNulty joined Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and over the next four years developed a successful practice at its satellite cancer center in Milford, Mass.

Rex Hematology Oncology Associates of Garner is now open and seeing patients. The practice is located behind the White Oak Shopping Center at 300 Health Park Drive, Suite 220, Garner. The area, at the intersection of I-40 and U.S. 70, has become a major medical hub with Rex Wellness Center of Garner nearby, as well as satellite offices of North Carolina Heart & Vascular, Rex Surgical Specialists, Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic and more.
