Moraine, Ohio—MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets, a leader in veterinary specialty healthcare, broke ground this week for expansion of the Dayton, Ohio hospital. Construction of a 19,000 square foot state-of-the-art veterinary hospital at their existing site at 2714 Springboro West, Moraine, OH is underway. The company’s commitment of $3.6 million will change many existing part-time jobs to full-time positions and add 15 new full-time jobs and expand current veterinary services to the Dayton area.
Groundbreaking ceremony at MedVet Dayton November 4th, 2016.
“Dayton has been an incredibly supportive community and we’re excited to expand here,” said Dr. Eric Schertel, president of MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets. “The additional space will allow for future growth of jobs and services. We expect to move into the new hospital in April 2017.”
MedVet, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, expanded its central Ohio presence to Dayton in 2012 in response to a growing demand for veterinary emergency and referral services in that region. They have outgrown their current 7,200 square foot facility.
Design of MedVet Dayton
MedVet hospitals work very much like a human hospital. “We offer state-of-the-art emergency and specialty care to cats and dogs in partnership with referring general practices. The emergency room is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to serve clients and patients as an extension of the family veterinarian’s practice when their family veterinarian is not available,” says Schertel.
In addition to emergency services, MedVet Dayton offers specialty services in anesthesia and pain management, cardiology, dermatology, internal medicine, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, and surgery.
