Important INFORMATION

Great lakes Vascular Study Group

Our Great Lakes Vascular Study Group is a voluntary, cooperative group of clinicians, hospital administrators, and research personnel organized to improve the care of patients with vascular disease.

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.

By collecting and exchanging information, our group strives to continuously improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of caring for patients with vascular disease.

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.

Join us in our efforts, and together we can reach these levels of quality for the care of our patients.
