The Center for Vascular Emergencies at Massachusetts General Hospital was created to advance research into the diagnosis, treatment and epidemiology of vascular emergencies, to educate providers and patients about these diseases, and to facilitate the multidisciplinary care of these complex patients. Vascular disease is a major public health problem. In the United States, venous thromboembolism accounts for about one million emergency department visits each year and cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Accurate diagnosis and coordinated care are vital to achieving good outcomes.

The Center is designed around a multidisciplinary team approach. We partner with the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center, Fireman Vascular Center, and the Stroke Service at Mass General, as well as the Divisions of Cardiology and Pulmonary & Critical Care in the Department of Medicine, the Department of Surgery, and the Department of Radiology. We also have close ties to epidemiologists at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Channing Laboratory at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Our partnerships ensure an interdisciplinary approach to research, education and patient care.
