The College of Veterinary Medicine has been educating veterinarians since its founding in 1885. Encompassing four hospitals and a large animal practice, the OSU Veterinary Health System provides care for more than 72,000 canine, feline, equine, and farm animal patients each year. The SOC Clinic will provide a realistic private practice environment to enhance the clinical training of veterinary students in all four years of the curriculum. It will be an important addition to the five-hospital Veterinary Health System and will be dedicated to training students to manage patients across the entire spectrum of care, emphasizing the importance of offering diagnostic and treatment options for clients across the socioeconomic spectrum.
The scope of this project included a new two-story, 35,000 SF Spectrum of Care Clinic. The first floor includes a lobby and reception area, exam rooms, treatment stations, small animal wards, dentistry, surgery, two garage bays, a loading dock, and exterior dog run. The second floor includes a conference room, offices, break room, mechanical room, and 9,500 SF of shell space. The shell space will be renovated as a separate project in the future.
