Southern Veterinary Partners (SVP) is now operating in 12 states, after acquiring Glade Valley Animal Hospital in Frederick, Md., and Lyndon Animal Clinic in Louisville, Ky.
The new acquisition brings the count to 79 animal hospitals between Texas and Maryland.
“Our rapid growth from starting in one state in 2014 to 12 states in less than five years is more than I could have envisioned when I conceptualized SVP,” says the company’s chief executive officer, Jay Price, DVM. “This growth is due to our extraordinary veterinary leadership and management teams and the reputation we have built in the industry for listening to veterinarians’ needs.”
“We welcome Jeffrey Head, DVM; Stephen Derrenbacher, DVM; and Lori Landis, DVM, from Glade Valley Animal Hospital and Kurt Oliver, DVM; Kourtney Roppel, DVM; Matthew Thompson, DVM; and Julia Gawley, DVM, from Lyndon Animal Clinic to our team of more than 300 veterinarians. These doctors now have a wealth of resources, best practices, and mentoring opportunities within SVP to help them grow in their careers.”
