Meet VCU Baird Vascular Institute

VCU Baird Vascular Institute offers a convenient and caring option for patients requiring vascular services.  For patients requiring placement of ports for chemotherapy treatment, Baird is a safe, easy, and comfortable environment to have a port placed by an experienced academic physician.

Physicians at Baird also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease, varicose veins, and many other vascular conditions including aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, and dialysis access management. While a freestanding building, this outpatient facility is part of VCU Medical Center so patients have easy access to other services, if needed.

VCU Baird Vascular Institute was built for patients’ comfort and provides the latest technology and a range of diagnostic and vascular treatment services. Physicians at the Institute are interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons, and work together with patients’ medical team members to ensure comprehensive, effective treatment. All patients are treated with care, compassion and comfort.

VCU Baird Vascular Institute was made possible in large part by the generous donation of Jane B. Baird Hyde, who bequeathed the building and land to VCU in memory of her late husband, Charles L. Baird Jr., M.D.

Dr. Baird, who passed away in 2008, was a pioneering cardiologist and the founder and director of the Virginia Heart Institute. The building that now houses the VCU Baird Vascular Institute previously housed the Virginia Heart Institute.

With our friendly, comfortable outpatient environment and skilled physicians with academic expertise, VCU Baird Vascular Institute offers excellent vascular care without the overwhelming experience of a large hospital. Learn more here. For more information, please call (804) 828-2600 or email
