Azura Vascular Care extends brand to the Gateway City as established outpatient center changes its name

Northwest Vascular Care adopts new name and logo.   

Malvern, Pa., January 30, 2018 — Azura Vascular Care announced today that Northwest Vascular Care, located at 201 Dunn Road in Florissant, Missouri, is now Azura Vascular Care St. Louis. A partner of the Azura Vascular Care national network of outpatient vascular and ambulatory surgery centers, the center specializes in minimally invasive treatment for dialysis access management, varicose veins and other vascular conditions which can be treated safely in an outpatient setting such as uterine fibroids, peripheral artery disease and varicoceles. Azura Vascular Care St. Louis operates Mondays through Fridays and is led by Medical Director Jay Albovias, MD.

The established vascular center has been serving the St. Louis area since 2012. “Dr. Albovias is a talented physician with specialized vascular expertise serving the greater St. Louis area,” said Dr. Gregg Miller, Vice President of Operations. “He has long been a local resident since attending medical school at the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Medicine and completing his residency at St. Louis University Hospital; he is now raising his family in the area,” added Dr. Miller.

“I am ever thankful to have the opportunity to improve the lives of so many of the people I share my own community with,” states Dr. Albovias. “We have a new name, but the trusted team is the same. Our Facility Administrator, Shirley George, has been a familiar face at our center since its opening and has strong bonds with many of our patients and their families. Our entire team’s collective goal is to provide a safe, convenient and comfortable environment while providing the best possible patient outcomes.”

Azura Vascular Care, formerly Fresenius Vascular Care, operates in partnership with top local vascular specialists in a national network of 68 outpatient vascular and ambulatory surgery centers—and growing. In June 2017, Azura launched a rebranding initiative to unite its centers as one integrated organization, reflecting the full breadth of its capabilities as leaders in vascular care.

Dr. Albovias also leads Azura Surgery Center St. Louis, which is licensed by the State of Missouri and accredited by The Joint Commission. For more information, visit Azura Vascular Care St. Louis.
