Specialists from vascular medicine, cardiology, vascular surgery and nursing provide innovative and comprehensive care at the Vascular Center at Mercy Hospital.

Offering vascular medicine unique to the Twin Cities, the Vascular Center serves patients of Mercy and Unity hospitals.

Vascular disease means that arteries or veins may not be working as well as they once did. Vascular disease includes a range of conditions that affect the blood vessel systems. The risk of stroke or heart attack is higher for persons who have vascular disease.

Patients benefit from the latest in diagnostic and treatment technology for a variety of vascular conditions and diseases:

  • peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • carotid artery disease
  • aortic aneurysm
  • deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
  • varicose veins

The Vascular Center is located at Mercy Hospital in Suite 100. Enter through the Mercy Heart & Vascular Center entrance, located on Blackfoot Street just south of the main hospital entrance.
