In the last few weeks we’ve added four new hospitals to the CVP family, bringing the total number of partnerships to nine. We’ve now tripled the number of CVP hospitals in 2012.
“This has been an exciting year for us at Community Veterinary Partners,” said Daniel Eisenstadt, president of Community Veterinary Partners. “We’ve added six terrific hospitals to the family this year. These are long-standing businesses with deep ties to their local communities. They are a perfect fit for CVP because they share our commitment to excellent medical care and strong business results.”
The four newest locations are in central Pennsylvania. The partnerships are consistent with CVP’s operating philosophy to operate non-competitive hospitals in regional geographies. The hospitals are: Shippensburg Animal Hospital, Mount Rock Animal Hospital, Allen Road Veterinary Clinic and Winding Hill Veterinary Clinic.
Shippensburg, Mount Rock and Allen Road are part of the Shippensburg Animal Hospital family, which has been serving the Cumberland Valley region of Pennsylvania for the past 60 years. CVP’s partner and director of medicine for the hospital group is John D. Stoner DVM, who has operated the hospitals for 24 years. The partnership with Dr. Stoner closed last month.
“We provide a personal approach to the medical care of our patients,” said Dr. Stoner. Our three small-animal locations deliver comprehensive veterinary care including outpatient medical and routine surgical as well as more advance orthopedic surgical care and diagnostics.”
Shippensburg Animal Hospital and its dedicated staff are active members of the Cumberland Valley community and support the local shelters and animal rescues in a variety of ways. They participate in discount spay and neuter programs and help raise money and increase support for needy and unwanted animals.
“We are excited about our partnership with CVP and the opportunity it provides us to continue to grow and better serve the Cumberland Valley’s animal health needs,” said Dr. Stoner.
Winding Hill Veterinary Clinic is located in Mechanicsburg, Pa. It has been owned and operated by Drs. Steve Tagg and Doug Brenner since 1982. The hospital is a nine-time and current winner of the “Simply the Best” award, as chosen by Harrisburg Magazine. CVP’s investment in Winding Hill closed earlier this month.
“Partnering with CVP was a big step and an important decision for us,” said Dr. Tagg. Being a partner rather than an employee was a big factor in our decision. We are looking forward to having less administrative responsibilities so we can concentrate on medical management.”
