Project Details

More information about our project:

The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center Hospital for Companion Animals welcomed 27,000 patient visits last year. We have experienced a 40 percent increase in patient visits in the past six years.

Changes in medicine – from new diagnostic capabilities, to a focus on out-patient services – require that we update and improve our space.

Ambitious goals

The $32 million Enhancement and Expansion project includes construction of a building addition and renovation of existing space for a total of 57,000 square feet of space at the hospital.

As of June 2015 a total of $23 million has been raised in support of this project.
