VetCor Celebrates 20 Years of Helping Practices Thrive!

On October 20, 1997, VetCor partnered with its first practice, Riverside Animal Hospital in Riverside, RI. Founding members Dan Adams, CEO, and Peter Defeo, Chief Development Officer and General Counsel, along with Wendy Koelsch, our Corporate Counsel, were all there for this breakthrough event, and are still with us today.

VetCor is celebrating 2 decades!Since that day twenty years ago, they have worked tirelessly to cultivate a uniquely VetCor network comprised of a wide variety of practice and community styles, in lively cities, thriving suburbs, and charming country settings. By surrounding ourselves with amazing people, keeping the lines of communication open, and always focusing on being honest and doing the right thing, we have grown our network to over 230 practices across 25 states, with over 750 veterinarians and 4,000 supporting staff members!

We believe that our success stems from our commitment to investing not only in the long term health and success of our practices, but also in the health and success of patients and pets in our communities. Medical freedom, respect for each practice’s legacy, and support from our corporate office has been what sets us apart.

But it doesn’t stop there. We’ve also made a commitment to the people that make up these great teams. Our Life at VetCor program encourages each employee's professional success, personal wellbeing and company connection. Our overriding view is that if we all do the right thing in our daily actions with patients, clients, coworkers and beyond, we will collectively succeed, and we believe that our growth is thanks in large part to this philosophy.

So, as we look back on the last 20 years and humbly celebrate such a momentous occasion, we are overwhelmed with pride and gratitude for all that we’ve accomplished and all who have helped to make it happen. We look forward to many more great years helping our practices - and our people - thrive. Let’s make year 20 the best one yet!
