Critical new facilities sought to further Penn Vet’s high-impact innovations
On the campus where modern veterinary medicine was born, Penn Vet continues to lead and innovate. Penn Vet’s power depends on our ability to deliver the best care to animals, as well as to translate veterinary advances to human health. This Campaign will accelerate the translation of new medical knowledge into leading-edge, integrated facilities for animals great and small.
The Emergency Service and Intensive Care Units at Penn Vet’s Ryan Hospital are a clinical and teaching jewel of emergency and critical care. With one of the largest emergency caseloads in the field, the hospital is home to world-class medical and surgical critical care specialists, with extensive experience in trauma, shock, and other emergency conditions. Penn Vet has launched a vision for a world class Veterinary Trauma Center that will galvanize the expertise of clinicians and new technology, and reimagine our clinical space to ensure that pets receive as much expertise and compassion during the most difficult times of their treatment. With campaign support, the Veterinary Trauma Center will set a new benchmark for innovation, re-thinking clinical care by maximizing animal treatment and outcomes.
Penn Vet’s Ryan Hospital also delivers excellent, comprehensive, and compassionate cancer care to over 6,000 dogs and cats each year. Our multi-disciplinary oncology teams create treatment plans to ensure good quality of life during and after care. Phase two of Ryan’s expansion will leverage this unique foundation into one premier, integrated veterinary cancer center that will accelerate the translation of research discoveries into effective cancer treatments for animals. The Penn Vet Cancer Center will bring together basic cancer research, clinical trials, and patient care in one consolidated location at Ryan Hospital. In this modernized, synergistic environment and state-of- the-art facility, researchers and clinicians will be able to bring research breakthroughs from laboratories directly to patients faster than ever before.
Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa., internationally recognized for its long history of advancing equine surgery, will continue to revolutionize veterinary medicine through the Advanced Imaging and Translational Center (AITC). Building upon New Bolton’s robotics-driven imaging system for the standing horse, the AITC will integrate the robotic imaging platform into the surgical navigation system that will provide less invasive and more precise surgical procedures. The possibilities will be unlimited in terms of the conditions that can be addressed in both animals and humans through the AITC.
