ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. — Construction is to begin next spring on a 33,000-square-foot veterinary specialty and emergency trauma center in Robbinsville, central New Jersey, replacing the existing 5,200-square-foot Veterinary Surgical and Diagnostic Specialists facility in Millstone Township, N.J. The name of the $9 million center, to be built on a three-acre site, is not yet decided.
When it becomes operational in May of 2010, it will employ 183, including 37 specialists and emergency clinicians, and treat about 375 animals per week, making it one of the state's largest and most advanced facilities of its kind, according to Brie Messier, hospital administrator.
Headed by Daniel Strobie, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, the center will provide services in surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, oncology, radiology, derma-tology, emergency care, critical care, cardiology, complementary therapies and more. It will be a Level 1 trauma center, staffed to handle emergency cases 24/7, principals say, with cases referred by primary-care DVMs.
