Southern Veterinary Partners has expanded its footprint and moved into two new states with the acquisitions of Glade Valley Animal Hospital in Frederick, Maryland and Lyndon Animal Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky.
With these additions, Southern Veterinary Partners (SVP) now has 79 animal hospitals across 12 states from Texas to Maryland.
Based in Birmingham, SVP is a veterinarian owned and operated regional network of animal hospitals in the South with a goal of providing personalized care with exceptional hospitality.
Dr. Jay Price, CEO of Southern Veterinary Partners says, “Our rapid growth from starting in one state in 2014 to in 12 states in less than 5 years is more than I could have envisioned when I conceptualized SVP. This growth is due to our extraordinary veterinary leadership and management teams and the reputation we have built in the industry for listening to veterinarians’ needs. We welcome Dr. Jeffrey Head, Dr. Stephen Derrenbacher and Dr. Lori Landis from Glade Valley Animal Hospital and Dr. Kurt Oliver, Dr. Kourtney Roppel, Dr. Matthew Thompson and Dr. Julia Gawley from Lyndon Animal Clinic to our team of more than 300 veterinarians. These doctors now have a wealth of resources, best practices and mentoring opportunities within SVP to help them grow in their careers.”
Founded in 2014, SVP has grown from three hospitals in Alabama to 79 across 12 southern states and has been named one of the fastest-growing companies and largest private companies in Birmingham and Alabama. In 2018, SVP was named to the Inc. 5000 list as the 235th fastest-growing company in America.
SVP provides centralized support including marketing, HR, finance and inventory and purchasing management and enhanced benefits to the team members. By leveraging its infrastructure, SVP allows the hospitals in its network to focus on medicine and their patients to facilitate best-in-class veterinary services and exceptional client experiences.
