The new MVPH was modeled after the agrarian architectural influences of rural Lancaster County while maintaining a contemporary flair indicative of the pet care practice’s state-of-the-art technology. They boast canine- and feline-specific examination areas, cat-boarding spaces, isolation and treatment facilities, dental care, x-ray room, a surgery suite—and even a self-help dog grooming station.
The expanded fifty-year-old practice exhibits the inviting and client-friendly approach of its veterinary leadership and staff. Whether assisting with the placement of furnishings and artwork or gaining the requisite approvals from local and state agencies, the designers and planners at TONO adapted the necessary scopes of work to best accommodate this growing healthcare facility.
“I really wanted to make better use of the space that we did have and put it in a flow that made more sense to being efficient. I enjoy coming to work; I love the space. It gives you a sense of pride and it’s a much nicer feel. It’s just exactly what we wanted.”
