Vascular Services Come to Hillsdale Hospital

Posted at 1:45 PM, Nov 08, 2019

HILLSDALE, Mich. — Hillsdale Hospital announced Friday that Dr. Abedel Abushmaies will begin providing vascular care and surgery this month. Patients will now have local access to these services, saving the time, expense and health challenges of traveling outside the area for care.

“There is a growing need for vascular care in the community, specifically minimally-invasive procedures,” Abushmaies said. “Many vascular conditions can be treated without an open surgical approach. Now, we can provide that care locally.”

Through this partnership, Abushmaies will work with the hospital’s team to provide inpatient evaluations and perform needed procedures. He will also do consultations with emergency room patients, providing immediate vascular care. When needed, many surgical procedures can be performed just down the hall in the hospital’s operating room.

“We are excited to work with Dr. Abushmaies to provide much-needed vascular services for our community,” JJ Hodshire, chief operating officer, said. “Patients can face significant challenges to travel or be transported outside the county for care. This partnership is just the latest in new specialty services we continue bringing to Hillsdale, making high-quality care more and more accessible.”

Abushmaies is certified by the American Board of Vascular Surgery and has more than 20 years of experience performing vascular procedures. He is also a member of the Society of Vascular Surgery.
