The free event was held Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 at the UT Veterinary Medical Center at 2407 River Drive, Knoxville, TN, 37996. A ribbon cutting took place at 11:30am.
In spring 2011, the college broke ground on the $20.9 million project which encompasses more than 85-thousand square-feet of new and renovated construction. The Farm Animal Hospital, which was recently completed, includes standing and recumbent surgery suites, species-specific stalls (bovine, small ruminant and swine, camelids) and treatment rooms, and new cattle working facilities, and a new facility dedicated to rehabilitation of injured livestock. The Equine Hospital and the 32-thousand 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 (or 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 podiatry center.
