Business Projects – CRVWC

Church Ranch Veterinary Wellness Center

CRVW_front_bldg_sign

30,000 sq. ft, hospital (largest in Colorado), full service state-of-the-art hospital with multiple surgical (laser) suites, dentistry, Endoscopy, Ambulance service, Training Center and Pet Resort and Travel Agency.

Project took 2 years to fully design, and a little over a year to build. I was hired as a management consultant in the previous practice, then was asked to help design and build the new practice. I was business partner/owner and acting CEO from 2000 – 2008.

It was the first Veterinary Hospital of it’s kind, the largest in the state of Colorado, and maybe in the United States. We opened for business on Ground Hog day (Feb. 2nd.) 2004.  It won Hospital of the Year for 2 years in a row: 2004 & 2005

I toured the country giving presentations on the unique design, flow pattern, and management structured required to run it.
