Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center
This 21,000sf building incorporates modern technology into a state-of-the-art facility providing 24-hour emergency medical and surgical services. The facility accommodates a staff of surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, emergency care doctors and an acupuncturist.
The facility includes generous reception and waiting areas, workspaces and support space for 25 doctors and staff along with 12 exam rooms. The technical spaces include two surgical suites, a radiology room, a CT room, an MRI and Specialty Procedures room, a Linear Accelerator room and two laboratories with medical gasses as well as intensive care wards.
The facility also provides a large conference and presentation center for continuing education for veterinarians and technicians. The new hospital provides advanced care in oncology, internal medicine, ophthalmology, cardiology, dermatology, critical care medicine, surgery, imaging and acupuncture. It offers radioactive iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism in cats and is the first private veterinary specialty hospital in the Delaware Valley to offer radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer in pets, previously only available at the University of Pennsylvania.
PZS also recently completed the design and development of VSEC’s second office, a smaller satelite facility located on Front Street in South Philadelphia. This facility boasts a rooftop play area for pets, and has resources to treat city pets in emergency situations.
