VCA Oak Hills Animal Hospital

The new VCA Oak Hills Veterinary Hospital replaces the original facility that had been located on the same site since the late 1960’s. The clinic had to be operational during construction so like other projects we have done in the past, the new clinic was designed to be built on additional vacant land behind the existing building. When construction was complete on the project, the clinic and office operations were able to move to the new facility and the old one was demolished to make room for the new parking lot and landscaping. At 5350 s.f., the new building is almost double the size of the original clinic.
The building interior consists of a spacious lobby with a vaulted ceiling, separate areas for canine and feline waiting and a small retail sales area. There are 4 exam rooms and an additional exam/consult room as well as a large lab and pharmacy area. The treatment room is the central hub of the clinic and has 4 treatment tables, 2 of which are ‘wet’ tables that have large sinks with running water. In addition there is a surgery suite with 2 tables, an x-ray/ imaging room, an isolation ward, spacious cat boarding and kennel areas, a doctor’s office, a business office, staff break room and ample storage. The clinic windows and materials that were selected bring in natural light and provide easy maintenance while giving a bright cheery feel to the inside of the building.
The exterior is a red brown brick with lighter contrasting brick accents. The roofing is a brown dimensional shingle that completments both brick colors. The new look updates what was existing but blends well with the established neighborhood and surrounding buildings. A Large Oak and persimmon tree that were on site have been preserved and the new landscaping provides a fresh new look to the overall project.
