Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital is back and better than ever under new management


Full-service veterinary center provides stress-free wellness services and pet pharmacy on-site

HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 4, 2022) – The Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital is in the midst of a reopening – back in business as a Heart + Paw Partner Practice. A full-service veterinary center, Mid-Atlantic is focused on providing stress-free wellness services, including medical care, preventive health care, surgery, diagnostic services, and radiology for pets in one convenient location, as well as a pet pharmacy within the facility.

With the practice owner retiring late last year, Mid-Atlantic was scheduled to close at the end of July. Heart + Paw, one of the fastest growing veterinary care, grooming, and dog daycare center groups in the country, took the opportunity to step in to save the clinic just two days before the practice was set to close. Over the past few months, the Heart + Paw team has been upgrading equipment, installing new technology such as online appointment bookings, and hiring a team of veterinarians, technicians and staff, all with the goal of rebuilding what has always been a great practice in Hagerstown.

“We are honored by the opportunity to re-open this clinic and again become a trusted and flourishing service to the community,” said David Lasus, CEO of Heart + Paw. “Mid-Atlantic is now back and committed to the long haul as a go-to for the Hagerstown pet community. We have brought back jobs, recruited top doctors and reopened our doors – if you don’t have an appointment already, you can go online now and get on the book!”

Over the past few months, four highly-trained doctors have been brought on board. The practice’s lead veterinarian, Dr. Brittany Cole, DVM, has a wealth of experience in general practice as well as in mobile medicine. Cole is a graduate of University of Glasgow, School of Veterinary Medicine and a Maryland native who now lives in the area.

“I joined this team knowing that Heart + Paw values high-quality care, the well-being of its teams and involvement in the communities they serve,” said Cole. “We are aligned, working as a team to rebuild this practice in a way that supports our pets, pet parents, and the local community.”

To celebrate its return to Hagerstown, Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital will be hosting a grand reopening in the next few months. Details are forthcoming.

Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital is located at 1125 Professional Ct, Hagerstown, MD 21740. The center’s hours of operation are Monday 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m; Tuesday through Friday 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m; and Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. To make veterinary visits more convenient to book, clients may use the new online booking tool – and follow the clinic Facebook for all updates.
