  • Physician Assistant - Vascular Surgery
  • PeaceHealth Medical Group Provider

Lauren Van Winkle, MPH, MMS, PA-C, joined the PeaceHealth Medical Group Vascular Surgery team of providers in December 2020. Lauren came to PeaceHealth from The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, where she worked in collaboration with a multidisciplinary healthcare team and was responsible for inpatient rounding and providing perioperative care to all surgical units.

Lauren has been actively engaged in the communities in which she practices. Most recently, she provided free medical care to underprivileged individuals residing at Central Arizona Shelter Services under the direct supervision of a physician.

“I strive to deliver compassionate, patient-centered care and to thoroughly educate patients about their disease processes and all treatment options available to them,” she said.

When she isn’t caring for patients, Lauren enjoys hiking, climbing, camping, biking and being outdoors as much as possible.
