This year has been an exciting one for VetCor! As we look forward to the year ahead, it’s important to take a minute to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together over the last year.
In 2019, over 50 of our veterinary technicians passed their boards, over 24 VetCor employees were accepted into veterinary school, and 78 veterinary students came through our externship and summer job programs. We hired 52 recent graduates and introduced a new health savings account (HSA) benefit for our employees.
We partnered with over 50 animal hospitals, entered California and Colorado for the first time, and surpassed 350 partner practices. We also supported the relocation of two hospitals and opened a new hospital, Elk Creek Animal Hospital of Hikes Point, in Louisville, Kentucky. On top of that, our employees helped expand our family by making over 550 full-time and over 250 part-time referrals, we celebrated 32 20-year employee anniversaries, and our ever growing VetCor family welcomed over 100 new babies into the world.
As we wrap up this year, we'd like to extend a huge thank you to our practice teams. Without you, we would not be where we are today. We really do appreciate everything you do.
From raising money for pets (and people) in your community and treating first responders to lunch to donating blood to people in need and buying microchip scanners for your local police departments, you constantly go above and beyond.
We're so thankful for all the changes we’ve experienced this year, as well as all of those to come, and we look forward to continued growth and success as we enter the new year.
