Among Top in the State and Nation for Vascular care

April 03, 2014

If you have vascular disease or are at risk for it, you’re fortunate that one of the top-rated hospitals in the country for the treatment of vascular conditions is located right in your community.

According to HeathGrades, a leading national health care organization, Providence Tarzana Medical Center was named among the top hospitals in California for vascular surgery and among the top 5 percent in the country. Providence Tarzana also earned five-star ratings for carotid surgery (which clears blockages from the blood vessels in the neck) and peripheral vascular bypass surgery (which reroutes blood flow around a blocked vessel going to the legs or feet) from the organization.

“We perform a large number of procedures with very good outcomes, leading to our high ranking,” says Zahi Nassoura, M.D., a vascular surgeon at Providence Tarzana. “These outcomes mean our results were superior to our neighboring hospitals and across the state of California. The credit goes to all the vascular surgeons at the hospital, as well as the support team of anesthesiologists and ICU nurses.”
