The current facility, completed in May 2005, was designed and built over a three year period. The building was conceived from the ground up to be a functional, yet attractive, addition to the community. Consideration was given to location, visibility, and ease of access from anywhere in the community. The facility's construction exceeds local hurricane standards and, if necessary, can be powered by an 80,000 watt diesel generator for an entire week. There is a convenient, covered, drive-up entrance which leads into the large comfortable waiting area. The hospital is open, bright, and airy, yet brimming with technology which helps promote a sense of ease and confidence that you and your pet will be well attended. The facility includes 6 exam rooms, 6 treatment stations, 3 surgical suites, 4 imaging suites, a dedicated ICU, and a private visitation room. Doctors have access to a comprehensive in-house lab as well as the support of several outside reference labs for non-critical test. The on-site array of advanced imaging capabilities is unparalleled in the area. The hospital is a Hemopet blood banking repository maintaining a variety of canine and feline products on-hand for in and outside hospital use. Oxygen and suction connections are routed throughout the building, providing for their immediate use if needed. The floor's epoxy surface was specially chosen for its non-skid, non-porous, and ease of sterilization. The net result is a comfortable, clean and technologically advanced hospital, here to serve you, your pet, and your pet's primary care veterinarian's needs.
