LONGMONT - Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists began operating today in its new 8,400-square-foot clinic at 104 S. Main St. in Longmont.
Veterinarian Matthew B. Rooney, owner and clinical director of the specialty hospital for dogs and cats, is hoping to receive Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification for the rebuilt building, a former car dealership, and is pursing a zero-waste operation.
Rooney paid $950,000 for the land and spent another $1.6 million in reconstruction of the building.
Project manager was Pallavicini LLC of Denver; architect was Lewis Himes Associates Inc. in Littleton; and construction was performed by Dohn Construction Inc. of Fort Collins.
The clinic previously was called Flatiron Veterinary Specialists and was located in a smaller space at 230 S. Main St. in Longmont.
Services include advanced surgery, an internal medicine team, an intensive-care unit, and emergency, physical therapy, pain-management, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and blood bank services.
The clinic is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It employs seven doctors, three interns, 20 nurses and seven administrative staff members. Contact the hospital at 303-678-8844.
