Join your Great Lakes Vascular Study Group peers in the VQI.

We are a group of hospitals and vascular specialists in Ohio and Western Pennsylvania who have committed to collecting, sharing, and analyzing data related to vascular interventions and outcomes.

Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients and to explore the factors that predict the best outcomes. We take advantage of the rapidly accumulating data that come from collaboration with other interested groups.

The Vascular Study Group of New England, and more recently other Regional Quality Groups, have shown us how much can be accomplished with such a regional collaboration.

If you perform vascular surgery or other vascular interventions and work in eastern Ohio or western Pennsylvania, we would be delighted to talk with you about joining the Great Lakes VSG.

I would be happy to hear from you by email at
