Hospital Dedication Ceremony
February 13 at 2 p.m.
2200 College Station Road, Athens, Georgia
Please make plans to join us for the dedication of our new Veterinary Medical Center. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a brief reception and tours of the new Teaching Hospital for all attendees. We would love for you to come and celebrate this important milestone with us! Please note that this is the dedication of the new facility only. The Hospital will not actually open until late March.
The UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital will open at its new location on College Station Road March 25, 2015. This state-of-the-art facility will allow the Hospital to better meet its current patient care demands and the educational needs of the College while ensuring a bright future for both the CVM and the veterinary profession.
The entire site will be referred to as the Veterinary Medical Center and will include a new teaching hospital for small and large animals, a covered equine performance arena, a building dedicated to Field Services, Production Medicine and Theriogenology, and an education building for teaching and continuing education courses.
The new UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital will not only look impressive, but it will also feature top of the line equipment that is on the leading edge of what is currently being used in veterinary medicine.
These improvements can be found throughout the facility and range from food animal hydraulic chute systems to advanced cancer treatment options.
The new buildings that make up the Veterinary Medical Center received a wealth of financial support for construction. Four separate units of the Large Animal Hospital and three classrooms in the Education Center will be named for these private donors. Other spaces in the hospital, such as exam rooms, stalls, surgery spaces, etc. will also be named in honor of other generous supporters.
The new facility is located at 2200 College Station Road, Athens, Georgia.
Remember, the new Vetrinary Medical Center won't be operational for business until 3/25/15. We will continue to utilize the original facility until that time.
