Renovations and Livestock Service Updates
Demolition has begun! Over the next several months, March – August 2020 renovations to the Livestock Services receiving area will take place to enhance patient handling services. The clinic is NOT closed during this period and will continue to provide service. However, with regard to the current COVID-19 outbreak situation we are limiting our services to urgent / time-sensitive or emergency cases only and for this reason our receiving activities will be somewhat diminished.
To schedule an appointment, please call 785-532-5700. For all appointments during normal business hours (Monday – Friday; 8 a.m. -5 p.m.) please pull around to the gravel lot east of the hospital and check in at the Large Animal Desk.
For all emergencies afterhours, please check in at the Emergency Desk on the west side of the building before pulling around back. Personnel will meet you and provide instruction for drop-off and/or pickup.
Please excuse the construction as we work to make improvements for our service. We appreciate your commitment to the VHC and understanding through this project and challenging time.
