Modern Vascular – We Are Still Here

Welcome to Spring and to the beginning of our Second Financial Quarter. As part of my Spring message to you, I will share with you someone else’s words that inspire me each day and which I feel appropriately frame what for now has become the new “normal” at Modern Vascular.

“They have tried to squeeze us out, to stamp us into the past. But we are still here. And there are more of us every day.”
-Lauren Oliver

The reality is that life is hard, life is not perfect, and life always seems to have its own plan, which oftentimes, does not align with our plans. I am the Chief Executive Officer of Modern Vascular and I AM STILL HERE! And I am not here alone, the Board, the entirety of our C-Suite, and leadership team are also still here and we are all fully committed in our service to you and to our patients. We will continue to be here as ambassadors to our Modern Vascular Family and to our patients regardless of the storms that may come our way. We are committed to this company and, while we understand that fear of the unknown is very real, we ask all of you to continue to stand beside us in service to our patient populations in one unified voice, let’s let the world know that “We, Modern Vascular, are Still Here and there are more of us every day!”

Thank you for your continued commitment to this organization and to our patients.

Patrick Santore, Chief Executive Officer

National Heart Month   

February was National Heart Month!

As we support National Heart Month, it is important to note the link between Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and the heart. The heart plays a vital role in the circulatory system by keeping the blood pumping. Without the arteries carrying blood from your heart, you would not be able to supply oxygen to your limbs! Learn more about the heart and Peripheral Artery Disease.
