A centralized hospital is simply a coordination and collaboration of quality, essential medical services.
In 1968, Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital was established with that goal in mind — to provide necessary advanced care options for your animals, including emergency and 24-hour care. Modeled after the human medical concept, Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital (MVH) allowed affiliated doctors the ability to offer a level of care not previously available on a local level. Today, Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital provides affiliated general practitioners the ability to offer, as part of their local practice, the benefits of a large, state-of-the-art hospital:
- Advanced surgical suites
- 24-hour intensive care
- Superior diagnostic imaging
- Consultation on cases with specialists
- In-house regional diagnostic laboratory
What does that mean for you? Take the case of Fluffy, for instance, a middle-aged dog who was brought to her MVH-affiliated veterinarian for vomiting. After a thorough physical exam is performed at the office, her veterinarian notes that more extensive testing may be needed. Referred to the hospital, Fluffy’s MVH-affiliated general veterinarian would still oversee her case, possibly ordering hospitalization with intravenous fluids, laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging. If necessary, her MVH-affiliated veterinarian could call on the expertise of one or more of the many board-certified specialists practicing in the hospital. Fluffy’s veterinarian is able to offer her superior diagnosis and care because he’s part of a centralized hospital.
