Build a Vascular Access Program

Vascular Access Nurse Specialists take their role seriously. One word: Accountability!

Our Vision

CVC Health Care was founded to educate all who care for the patient with a vascular access device. We can help you build a successful vascular access program and your own team of experts. Having vascular access nurse specialist in house can improve patient outcomes and improve the patients experience in your facility. With the financial challenges we face today in health care, we can reduce costs associated with complications related to all devices. Choosing the right device on admission and educating all who care for the the patient with a device prevents delays in therapy, reduces complications and improves patient satisfaction scores. The CDC states: "catheter related blood stream infections are preventable" and we agree with this!
