Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists moves to new Longmont location
This fall, Boulder Valley's premier specialty veterinary hospital, currently known as Flatiron Veterinary Specialists, will branch off and operate as Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists (AMVS), will function under the medical leadership of Dr. Matt Rooney, and will move to its new location at 104 S. Main Street in Longmont. The hospital provides specialty internal medicine, surgery, emergency and critical care, physical therapy, pain management, and blood bank services.
"Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists is a professional and highly-skilled team whoe goal is to improve the quality of life of our patients and their human families," said Dr. Rooney. "We offer superior specialty veterinary care focused on service and quality of care, rather than financial gain. Our vision is to be the veterinary specialty and emergency center of choice based on our five principles-compassion, expert/state-of-the-art care, teamwork, communication, and environmental/social responsibility."
In business since 2004, the clinic currently is certified with Boulder County's Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE). The new 8,400 AMVS building, currently under construction, is striving to be the very first veterinary business in the country to complete Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDs) certification and is pursuing a zero-waste operation.
"AMVS is an extension of the family veterinarian and is very connected to our community of animals and their guardians. Our mission is to provide the highest quality, advanced, compassionate veterinary care with unsurpassed service to our clients and referring veterinarians, " said Dr. Rooney. "We are committed to extending that committment to the community at large, which means making social and environmental committments as well. Our new business structure and state-of-the-art facility aim to provide the best care available while contributing midfully and responsibly to the social fabric of our community and the environmental integrity of our planet."
Dr. Rooney received his doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) in 1998 and master's of science degree in 2002 from Colorado State University and became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2004. He previously served on the faculty at CSU's School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. AMVS employs seven doctors, thre interns, 20 nurses, and seven administrative staff members.
AMVS' name change will be official on Aug. 31 with the new facility scheduled to open in mid-October.
