Vascular Care Has Evolved. It’s About Choices.

People living with vascular conditions don’t want overnight stays in the hospital, lengthy recovery periods and scheduling issues. They want to return to their daily lives quickly. Providence Access Care delivers a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.

Providence Access Care is committed to superior service and delivering far more. Patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, Providence Access Care offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing a prompt return to scheduled dialysis treatments. At the center, patients avoid the complexities of a hospital admission and return home to recover that same day.

Exceptional patient care Patients encounter a team that is kind and respectful, never indifferent. Individual needs are accommodated to ensure patients are comfortable and kept well-informed.

Efficient and customized communication The team at Providence Access Care partners with your physician care team, focusing on coordinating your vascular care. Immediate post-procedure reports are sent to your referring physicians and comprehensive reports follow within 24 hours after the procedure.

Patient education Patients see Providence Access Care as partners working to find the best treatment to fit their individual needs in vascular care. Online and printed materials are vital components of the patient experience and help patients to be well-informed about their health and available treatment options.
