Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital, a five-doctor practice in Bergen County New Jersey, is the newest member of the Community Veterinary Partners family. CVP invested in the hospital in May 2012, partnering with Dr. Alan Pomerantz to co-operate the hospital.
Franklin Lakes is a full-service veterinary hospital with a strong caseload of internal medicine, oncolgy and exotics. The hospital has a special connection to its clients and its community. Each year it hosts a well-known Adoption Day supporting dozens of local rescues and shelters.
Dr. Pomerantz was born and raised in New Jersey. He has worked in zoos, on farms, in shelters and for more than two decades in small animal medicine. He received his masters degree and DVM from Cornell University.
“Having someone like Community Veterinary Partners to handle the daily tasks of financial management, allows me to practice the type of veterinary medicine that I want to the best of my ability,” said Dr. Pomerantz. “CVP is helping to streamline the inefficiencies in my practice so that more resources will be available for clients, patients and staff.”
Dr. Pomerantz is joined by four other DVMs: Dr. Wendy Kozak, Dr. Jack Mastrascusa, Dr. Kristin Onesios and Dr. Jill Shiffman.
Franklin Lakes is the fifth hospital to join the CVP family and the first New Jersey hospital. It’s an important part of the CVP’s strategy to invest in hospitals with excellent medical standards. “Dr. Pomerantz has a stellar reputation and we are thrilled to partner with him,” said Daniel Eisenstadt, president of Community Veterinary Partners.
