The Michigan Vascular Center consists of the principle office complex providing space for clinical encounters, a large noninvasive vascular laboratory, the Research arm, Mobility Center and administrative offices as well as three satellite offices. Michigan Vascular Center has voluntarily achieved accreditation through AAAHC as well as The Society for Vascular Surgery. Personnel at the principal office coordinate scheduling of patient appointments, vascular procedures at all three participating local hospitals and will coordinate the activities of the Vascular Fellowship.
