Crescent Care Vet Hospital



After purchasing this former real estate sales office, the owner asked if we could convert it to a modern veterinary hospital, on a modest budget. Existing buildings can pose challenges of their own to the flow of a veterinary practice, and this one was no exception. This provided a wonderful opportunity for everyone to "Think Outside the Fence!" After resolving the zoning issues with the town, we met with Dr. Jeffrey Leeman who had agreed to lease the building for his start up clinic and was very open-minded about the opportunities the existing building presented. The location and character of the existing building were "just right" for his new practice, if we could work with the center entry and symmetrical left and right wings that were former sales offices.

And we did! The center entry with its beautiful vaulted ceiling off of the front porch was kept and is now used for reception, waiting and retail areas. The left wing was transformed from two sales offices into three exam rooms and the existing breakroom became the pharmacy. An existing exterior door allows bereavement clients to leave the clinic without exiting through the lobby. From right wing which originally housed sales offices, we created the treatment room, lab, surgery suite, X-ray and Isolation along with a small recovery room. Dr. Leeman and his team moved into their new clinic in the Spring of 2018.
