Vascular Surgery is an essential component of a hospital’s overall surgical program and performance. Often under-valued in the eyes of health system leadership, it is critical that health system leaders understand:
- Vascular surgery is necessary for a safe operating room environment and has a significant impact on lowering mortality and morbidity.
- Vascular surgery enables many other service lines that are significant revenue generators for a health system.
- Vascular surgery, endovascular and vascular medical care represent significant growth opportunities due to increasing prevalence and incidence nationally.
