The University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine has renamed its pet care facility Medical District Veterinary Clinic at Illinois. The facility, formerly Furnetic Veterinary Clinic, is the only Chicago primary care clinic affiliated with the state’s veterinary college. The new name was introduced to better identify the University of Illinois connection and to highlight the clinic’s location, according to the college.
Drew Sullivan, DVM, has been named medical director. Dr. Sullivan joined the university’s clinic last fall after practicing veterinary medicine in Decatur, Ill.
The facility was established in 2009 to expand the college’s mission of education, service and discovery to the states metropolitan center. The location remains the same: 2242 West Harrison Street.
