    The Heart and Vascular Unit is blessed to not only have a caring, compassionate and knowledgable nursing staff but also has the greatest interdisciplinary team which compliments the enitre patient experience. As we know it “takes a village” to provide care to these complex patients and we are thankful for the support and team work from the Hospitalist, Vascular Surgeons, Cardiologist, Care Managers, Diabetes educators, Wound nurses, Housekeepers, and all the other departments who touch our patients every day. Thank you for helping us win this award!
