UTVMC LA Construction & Renovation

(Knoxville, TN) -- The long-awaited renovation and expansion of the Equine and Farm Animal Hospitals at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center is underway. The project is essential to our commitment to the people and animals of Tennessee and across the southeastern states.

The $20.9 million project encompasses almost 85,000 square feet and targeted completion date of the Equine Hospital is February 2013. The Farm Animal Hospital will be completed later this spring.  Click here for the most recent photo of the ongoing construction of facilities. The image is updated hourly.
