Expansion planned for 24-hour emergency veterinary hospital near Uptown
Published May 17, 2017
An expanded state-of-the-art veterinary hospital with 24-hour emergency services is coming to Saanich’s Uptown area, Citified has learned.
The two-storey, approximately 4,000 square foot structure will be built and operated by the Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital on land occupied by the hospital’s existing single floor facility at 760-764 Roderick Street (behind the Island Home Centre retail complex).
Designed by Victoria-based KPL James Architecture, the hospital will feature a modern exterior with a mix of materials that include anodized aluminum, hardie planks and panels, and stone work. Just under 40 surface parking stalls will be accommodated adjacent to the new building.
Currently before the municipality of Saanich seeking zoning variances, the proposal is expected to receive approvals some time this year with construction slated to begin in 2018 or 2019.
The Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital is the only 24-hour, seven day a week emergency veterinary treatment and trauma centre south of the Nanaimo region. The facility retains the services of thirteen doctors. C
