Hope everyone is staying warm. I think I am ready to greet Spring any time now. The birds are returning to the feeders in droves, and I am ready to see the first blue bird of the year! But I digress…
I wanted to give everyone a sneak peak of the reception and waiting areas planned in the new building. I get lots of questions about how it might change, so here goes.
There will be one main entrance in our new location, but then there are 2 separate waiting areas: one for dogs and one for cats. The new feline only section has its own waiting area, exam rooms, treatment area and hospitalization area. I can’t wait to reveal the details of the exam rooms, but let’s say for now, we have designed them with the cats in mind. (The dog exam rooms are decked out too, so our canine companions won’t feel left out.
Upon entering the new building the view will be something like this:
The desk to the right is the welcome station. From here, patients will be checked in. This area is also dog waiting and refreshments. The desk to the left is check out and the door to the left is the entrance to the feline waiting area, feline exam rooms and feline treatment. This will be a no dog zone. To give you a better feel for it see the blue print rendering below:
We are excited to be able to continue keeping our feline patients calm and away from the dogs. It relieves their stress greatly. Also, with our move, our feline only hours will be expanded to the same office hours of the office! No more need to “come to the dog hospital” because the cat facility is closed. It will be open the same hours as the dog side, expanding the available appointment times!
I can’t wait to show you pictures of is the walls start going up!
One last note: some folks aren’t sure where the new hospital is going to be, so below you will find a map showing our current location and our future one. We are only moving 2 miles from our current location, so hopefully this will be equally convenient for you all!
This is a map of our future new location with directions from our old (current for now) location
I look forward to hearing from you! Do you think it sound cool? Are you excited too?!
