The Vascular Institute of Virginia has been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care and is one of more than 6,100 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States to meet nationally recognized standards.

Organizations seeking the accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and onsite survey by physicians, nurses and administrators involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.

The Vascular Institute of Virginia just opened a facility in Central Park and provides treatments for conditions including men’s and women’s health, vascular disease, kidney failure and oncology.
