Grand Opening Of Farm Animal And Equine Hospitals
The UT Veterinary Medical Center celebrated the grand opening of its new Farm Animal Hospital, Equine Hospital on September 21, 2013 in conjunction with its Equine Performance and Rehabilitation Center. The free event was held at the UT Institute of Agriculture campus at 2407 River Drive, Knoxville. UT President Joe DiPietro and UT Institute of Agriculture Chancellor Larry Arrington spoke during a brief ceremony, with a ribbon cutting immediately following.
In spring 2011, the college broke ground on the $20.9 million project that encompasses more than 85,000 square-feet of new and renovated construction. The new Farm Animal Hospital, which was recently completed, includes standing and recumbent surgery suites, species-specific (bovine, small ruminant and swine, and camelids) wards and treatment rooms, new cattle-working facilities and a new facility dedicated to rehabilitation of injured livestock.
The new Equine Hospital and the 32,000 square-foot Equine Performance and Rehabilitation Center (EPRC) were finished in February of this year. In addition to an isolation ward, intensive care unit including dedicated neonatal (foal) ICU stalls, and four surgical theaters, the renovation also includes an advanced diagnostic imaging center offering spiral CT, Nuclear Medicine and MRI. The EPRC houses an arena, in-ground underwater treadmill, free walker, cold saltwater hydrotherapy unit, solarium and a podiatry center.
In addition to self-guided tours, the public saw various species of farm animals and enjoyed free Mayfield Dairy ice cream. “Maggie” the Mayfield Dairy Cow was present at the event.
