New State-Of-The-Art Veterinary Referral Hospital in Dandenong
Elite recently completed the design and construction of a 1200sqm veterinary hospital in Dandenong that provides emergency and specialist services to pets.
Emergency services are provided by AEC, who also worked with VRH in their previous hospital location. The emergency and critical care department support specialty services 24 hours, 7 days a week and aims to increase availability of referral services to improve patient outcomes.
The facility is one of the largest purpose-designed veterinary hospitals in Melbourne, and features advanced surgical theatres, imaging suites, dedicated canine and feline intensive care units, custom built 1.5T MRI, CT, digital x-ray, ultrasound and fluoroscopy.
The ground floor of the new veterinary hospital includes 10 consult rooms, grieving room, treatment areas, separate dog and cat wards, cat boarding area, surgery kennels, 5 theatres, treatment room, pharmacy, emergency drop off zone, chemo dog/cat areas and dog runs. There is also an ICU cat and dog facility as well as MRI / CT / Endoscopy / Ultrasound / X-ray rooms. The mezzanine houses an office and staff amenities.
A classic colour palate was used throughout the hospital, with neutral low VOC paints applied on the walls, and timber-look flooring installed in the reception and waiting areas. Vinyl flooring in various shades of grey is featured throughout the treatment, surgery, steri and lab areas, facilitating easy cleaning and infection control.
AEC’s Peter Hammond said “Elite oversaw the largest project in the history of our company and were extremely supportive throughout. I would highly recommend Elite Fitout for projects of a similar nature.”
