The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine has broken ground on a 300,000 sq. ft. facility that will expand its teaching hospital. 

Opened in 1970, the current teaching hospital has become crowded and overtaxed due to increasing patient caseload and student enrollment. The new facility is scheduled to open in the spring of 2015. 

State funding and donations from alumni, grateful clients and supportive foundations provided the means to begin construction on the complex. The new teaching hospital will be much larger and provide more complete amenitites for the school's students and patients. In addition to expanded teaching facilities, the new building will feature advanced imaging resources, improved animal housing and a large arena for large-animal evaluation and monitoring.
