SARASOTA, Fla. — Halfacre Construction Company, a Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction company, recently broke ground on a two-story addition for the Veterinary Medical Center at Lakewood Ranch.

Located off Lorraine Road and State Road 70 at 15205 Garnet Trail in Lakewood Ranch, Halfacre Construction originally constructed the 6,300-square-foot facility that houses a full-scale medical center – outfitted with seven exam rooms, a surgery suite, a full laboratory, a dental suite and a spacious reception area.

The 12,000-square-foot two-story addition to the existing clinic will allow for the veterinary office to meet the demand for emergency and specialty services. Along with the addition, Halfacre will also supervise site upgrades, including landscaping, irrigation, site lighting, parking and hardscape. The project is expected to be complete in winter 2023.

The hospital is equipped with the latest diagnostics to treat everything from minor issues to life-threatening diseases. The on-hand laboratory equipment includes multiple in-house blood machines, ultrasound machines, digital and dental x-ray devices, three intensive care oxygen units, a high flow oxygen unit and endoscopy, among other items. A hyperbaric oxygen therapy and CT scanner will be added once the new facility is completed.

The new facility will also add 13 additional exam rooms, two treatment areas, a designated animal blood donation room and fully operational animal blood bank, additional surgery rooms and isolation facilities for infectious diseases.

The privately owned hospital offers a family-oriented atmosphere and sets a new standard of excellence with high-level customer service and compassionate vet care in Lakewood Ranch.
