MedVet has announced its expansion of the Dayton, Ohio hospital. The company’s commitment of $3.6 million will be used to build a new 19,000 square foot state-of-the-art veterinary hospital on their existing site at 2714 Springboro West Road, Moraine, OH. The investment will change many existing part-time jobs to full-time positions and add 15 new full-time jobs to the Dayton Area.
“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 break ground this fall and 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.
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 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.
