At BMC2, we are preparing for a transition in leadership as Dr. Peter Henke steps down from his role as the Director of BMC2 Vascular Surgery. For 10 years, Dr. Henke has been a champion for cardiovascular patients, greatly impacting the trajectory of improvements in quality of care and outcomes in vascular patients across the State of Michigan through his superb guidance and expertise. We are so very grateful for the years of service that Dr. Henke has provided to BMC2 and are lucky he will continue participating in BMC2 in an ex officio capacity.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Nicholas Osborne as our next Director of BMC2 Vascular Surgery, effective January 1st. Dr. Osborne has been an active and engaged member of BMC2 and we look forward to continuing our mission of improving quality of care and outcomes under his care.

He practices at both the Frankel Cardiovascular Center and the Ann Arbor Veteran's Affairs Hospital. He is the Chief of Vascular Surgery and Acting Chief of Surgery at the LTC Charles S. Kettles VA Medical Center, Ann Arbor.
