2014 was a crazy and exciting year as Friendship embarked on expanding its physical facilities to include an entirely new, state of the art second floor and freshly renovated ground and first floors. The addition of this space will double the size of the hospital and allow Friendship to offer more comprehensive services to the veterinary and pet-owning community. The new space will also allow for continuing education events for area veterinarians as well as clients and members of the community.
Current services provided by board-certified specialists include surgery, critical care, internal medicine, neurology, radiology, oncology and clinical pathology. With the completion of the expansion, Friendship will offer boarded referrals in cardiology and dermatology. A full-time board-certified anesthesiologist will launch a pain management clinic including acupuncture, massage, and physical therapy/rehab. Advanced imaging services will include a 16 slice CT scanner (the only 16 slice CT in the area) and a 1.5 Tesla MR both by GE.
The depth and breadth of Friendship’s specialty services means pet owners will not have to go all around town – or even out of town – for advanced care.
The bulk of construction is nearly complete. The finishing touches – furnishings and renovations – will be complete by spring of 2015. Friendship will remain fully functional through this time. Information regarding new services will be communicated as they launch.
