IVG MetroWest, Your New Destination for Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Services West of BostonApril 04, 2012
Wednesday April 4, Natick, MA – Thursday March 29thmarked the grand opening of the newest member of the IVG network of hospitals. This fourth hospital in the group is located in Natick Massachusetts and provides both 24 hour emergency care and veterinary specialty care in the fields of behavior, cardiology, internal medicine, ophthalmology, radiology and surgery. The ribbon cutting ceremony at IVG MetroWest was attended by over 150 members of the pet owner community, veterinary service providers, members of humane and rescue organizations, and IVG staff members.
In his address to those in attendance, G. Ames Prentiss, CEO expressed his intent, on behalf of IVG MetroWest, to “develop and extend relationships throughout the pet owning and pet care community, through collaboration and communication steeped in hospitality.”
Also in attendance was Dr. David Schwarz, member of the State of Massachusetts Animal Response Team (SMART) and co-owner of Ashland Animal Hospital. SMART is a coordinated network of public and private agencies and organizations, all committed to addressing the needs of animals in emergencies and disasters. Prior to the cutting of the ribbon he was given a few moments to introduce SMART to the audience present and solicit donations of time, energy and money for this vital service.
IVG is dedicated to fostering strong relationships with members of the communities within which our hospitals are located, and amongst other similarly dedicated organizations focused on the human-animal bond. We thank our generous sponsors for their donations of raffle prizes and for their continued support of IVG. We also thank all who were in attendance for sharing their evening with us and for their well wishes on the future of IVG MetroWest.
