Moving day is upon us…or shall we say moving days? It’s time to begin packing up the hospital in anticipation for the move into our new hospital and we must admit that we are very excited! In an effort to keep all of our clients in the loop, we would like to provide a schedule of events so that everyone knows what to expect and can plan accordingly as much as possible. We do realize that emergencies happen and we will certainly do our best to accommodate our clients. Having said that, we need to adhere to this schedule as closely as possible to make the move successful and get back into a fully functional hospital environment as quickly as possible so that we are able to provide the exemplary level of service to which our clients have become accustomed. Here is our current plan of action:
Friday, September 16 –
We will see appointments until 12pm. Our equipment will begin to be moved into the new hospital on Friday morning. We will have limited phone service while our lines are transferred to the new hospital building. Our front desk will remain open until 6pm for food and medication pickups. Hospitalized patients will remain with us under the care of doctors and staff.
Saturday, September 17-
Appointments are not being scheduled for Saturday. We will have limited resources available. Our vaccine clinic will be available from 10am-5pm. Emergencies beyond our capability will be referred to one of two Emergency Hospitals:
Orange County Emergency Pet Clinic
3920 N Harbor Blvd (cross streets are Harbor & Imperial)
Emergency Pet Clinic of San Gabriel
3254 Santa Anita Ave ( I 10 Freeway exit Santa Anita)
El Monte, CA
Sunday, September 18
We will do our best to be ready to see patients on Sunday. For now, we cannot be certain that this will be possible.
Monday, September 19-
Appointments will be seen on a limited basis during normal business hours.
Tuesday, September 20-
Back to business as usual.
We would like to thank you for your patience, flexibility and understanding this weekend during our move. This will be a major undertaking and we will do our level best to get back to normal as quickly as possible. We sincerely appreciate your patience over the past year with our construction and parking challenges. Your trust and loyalty mean the world to us and we certainly couldn’t have realized this vision without all of you!
We look forward to welcoming you all to our beautiful new hospital!
