PUEBLO, Colo. – American Vein & Vascular Institute, a network of vein diagnosis and treatment centers in Colorado and Texas, continues to expand its locations and employee base with the opening of its newest facility in Colorado Springs.
The sixth American Vein & Vascular Institute facility, in Colorado Springs, is slated to open November 5. American Vein & Vascular Institute Chief Medical Executive, Gordon Gibbs, M.D., along with Dr. Emma Stout, Diplomate of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM) and a Board Certified Family Medicine practitioner, will head the clinic. A formal grand opening is planned, and will be attended by local Colorado Springs dignitaries, American Vein & Vascular Institute staff and their families.
“We are thrilled to open this sixth American Vein & Vascular Institute facility in Colorado Springs,” says CEO Erin Gibbs. “We all are eager to become an even greater piece of the Colorado Springs small business landscape and to contribute in this fashion to the Colorado Springs community and surrounding region.”
Keila Dremstedt, R.N., joins the Colorado Springs American Vein & Vascular Institute facility as their newest vascular nurse. Recently, she vacated her position at Albert Vein Clinic where she assisted and performed cosmetic sclerotherapy and medical treatment plan completion. In her experience, Dremstedt has assisted in Laser and Radio Frequency Ablation procedures, conducted patient education on procedure preparation, pre- and post-op instruction, and follow-up requirements. She holds a number of certifications, including TNCC (Trauma Nursing Core Course), ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), BCLS (Basic Cardiac Life Support) and Pain and Sedation Management.
“Keila is one of the top vascular nurses in the industry,” says Dr. Gibbs. “And she has been part of the Springs medical community for as long as she’s been in the field. We are very fortunate to have her join our organization and we look forward to growing within the Colorado Springs community with her at the helm.”
Dremstedt received her Associates in Nursing from Pikes Peak Community College, L.P.N. from Northwest Missouri State University, and is currently working on her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Regis University.
“As my education in nursing expands, so does my hands-on experience,” says Dremstedt. “I look forward to assisting Dr. Gibbs and his expert staff in a field of medicine I’ve become very passionate about. Being part of American Vein & Vascular Institute’s expansion into the Colorado Springs community is thrilling; I’ve been serving here for many years.”
The new clinic is located at 175 S. Union Blvd., Suite 200, Colorado Springs, Colo., 80910. Appointments start November 5 and can currently be scheduled by calling American Vein & Vascular Institute’s central appointment desk directly at 719-372-5555.
