This December, the VCU Health Baird Vascular Institute celebrates its fifth anniversary of serving the community of central Virginia in offering the best of vascular care. A lot can change in five years and for BVI, things have only gotten better. After receiving the gracious gift of a building and land from the family of the late Dr. Charles L. Baird, a lot of work went into molding BVI into a vascular center providing top quality vascular expertise in a warm, friendly environment nestled into the community.
At the time of the bequest, the VCU Health Medical Center’s Department of Radiology and Division of Vascular Surgery had already laid the groundwork for a freestanding outpatient vascular care clinic. Over the years, advances in medical imaging and minimally invasive surgery techniques had made it feasible to treat a wide array of vascular conditions on an outpatient basis, outside the hospital. The building and its convenient location were ideal for a facility intended to serve patients throughout Central Virginia, and the VCU Health Baird Vascular Institute held its grand opening in October 2011 and saw its first patient that following December.
We are proud of the success of our practice and excited about new technologies we’re employing to help patients live healthier, more active lives. We value each and every one of our patients and have the utmost respect for the trust they place in our physicians and staff.
The providers and staff at BVI have enjoyed the support of the VCU Health System and have worked to ensure that the services that are provided here stay true to the vision and values that Dr. Baird exemplified through his life and work.
We thank you for putting your trust in BVI for the last five years. Here’s to many more anniversary celebrations in the future.
