The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine has announced plans to build a new 35,000 square foot veterinary clinic on campus. The $17 million facility will be located next to the recently remodeled laboratory, which was renovated at a cost of $9.3 million. The new facility, to be called the Frank Stanton Veterinary Spectrum of Care Clinic, will greatly increase the hands on opportunities available to veterinary students. The project is slated for completion by June 2021.
OSU joins several other veterinary programs in a race to renovate and upgrade facilities with multi-million dollar budgets. The University of Georgia completed a massive renovation a few years ago, and Cornell University’s major renovation was just completed. Purdue University is currently building a $37 million dollar large animal facility to include over 76,000 square feet of clinic space, which is expected to be completed in 2020. UC Davis is working towards an ambitious $508 million renovation that will increase its hospital space to 430,000 square feet.
The push to improve and expand facilities shows no sign of stopping, which is great news for aspiring veterinary students who will benefit from the upgrades in coming years. The only question is: which school will be the next to announce a major renovation?
