Why Baird Vascular Institute at VCU Health is unique

Baird Institute

With the expertise of a major medical center and the convenience of a neighborhood clinic, VCU Baird Vascular Institute is unique.

We are the only academically based vascular center in Central Virginia, combining the medical expertise, knowledge and advanced technologies of a prominent academic medical center with the ease and convenience of a neighborhood outpatient clinic.

The history of the VCU Baird Vascular Institute – and the inspiration for our work in advancing vascular medicine – is rooted on the work of a pioneering cardiologist, Charles L. Baird, Jr., M.D.

In 1972, Dr. Baird, a graduate of VCU School of Medicine and a member of the staff at the Medical Center, decided to take a bold step to completely transform the way vascular and heart disease was diagnosed and treated. He was convinced that early diagnosis and treatment could prevent needless suffering and save countless lives, and established the Virginia Heart Institute – now the VCU Baird Vascular Institute – to prove it. By bringing together the experience and expertise of leading interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons from VCU Health, we work to detect problems earlier and to develop and refine new, minimally invasive treatments and procedures that reduce risk, increase success rates and speed recovery for a wide range of vascular conditions, all on an outpatient basis. Because of this, you no longer have to travel to downtown Richmond to find advanced, comprehensive vascular care. We offer all our services under one roof, in one convenient location.

Advanced vascular care with the utmost convenience.

Our state-of-the-art facility offers customized vascular care tailored to the individual needs of each patient – set in a warm and friendly environment located conveniently just off Interstate 195 in the near West End at 205 N. Hamilton Street, Richmond.

Whether you are referred by your physician or wish a personal consultation, we have both the expertise and the latest technologies and techniques to diagnose and treat vascular disease and other problems. If we uncover signs of vascular disease, our experts can develop a custom treatment plan for you in close coordination with your doctor, and, as part of the VCU Health team, we can ensure the highest level of care for even the most serious of conditions.

If you are interested in a consultation for any of the services we provide, please contact us at (804) 828-2600 or send us an email.
