Ontario Equine Hospital will officially become part of King Animal Hospital on Sept. 1
King Animal Hospital has acquired the Ontario Equine Hospital as part of its mission to ensure every animal has access to compassionate and committed care.
The entire OEH veterinary team, including Dr. Darryl Bonder, Dr. Orlaith Cleary, and Dr. Jorge Cruz, as well as technicians and support staff, will join the team at King Animal Hospital to continue to provide care to equine patients, according to a news release.
King Animal Hospital is a privately owned, four-story, 60,000 sq.ft. multidisciplinary referral hospital located on 50 acres in King Township, where specialists and technologies can harmonize under one roof.
Equine-focused technologies include an MRI, standing CT scan with robotic arm, C-Arm fluoroscopy, digital x-ray, as well as other beneficial design features including a 5,800 sq. ft. indoor arena.
“Our vision is to revolutionize animal care and be a catalyst for knowledge exchange in the animal health-care industry,” said Tracy Jones, CEO of King Animal Hospital. “And because Dr. Bonder and the team at Ontario Equine Hospital share this vision, we know this consolidation helps propel us forward to achieve this goal.”
To this end, joining forces allows King Animal Hospital and Ontario Equine Hospital to combine their strengths, forming a powerful frontline team offering innovative and modern equine veterinary medicine.
“We have always prided ourselves in providing compassionate care to our patients,” said Dr. Bonder, who will be the chief medical officer for the equine division at King Animal Hospital. “In this new chapter, we remain deeply committed to the referring veterinarians who have entrusted us with the care of their clients and patients. The new arrangement provides continuity of service and will only strengthen our ability to support the industry for years to come.”
Effective Sept. 1, the team at Ontario Equine Hospital will become part of King Animal Hospital, continuing to operate through the end of the year in their current location and will move to the King Animal Hospital on Jan. 1, 2024.
In addition to its equine division, King Animal Hospital will also feature a small animal division that will offer surgery, critical care, dermatology, ophthalmology, neurology, rehabilitation and diagnostics.
