One of the largest medical operations in Loudoun County marks a decade of service this year, and the lives of lots of family pets are attributable to the work done there.
The LifeCentre started as a small emergency clinic with a staff of five in 1995 and opened its large facility at 165 Fort Evans Road in Leesburg in 2007. It employs more than 200, including a broad range of veterinary specialists and technicians who are on hand 24/7 to deal emergency cases.
Over the years, the center’s services have grown far beyond emergency and critical care services and surgeries. Today, the caseloads include cardiology, dentistry and oral surgery, behavioral treatment, dermatology, neurology, neurosurgery, and oncology. The center is outfitted with MRI and CT Imaging. There is also an isolation ward for possibly contagious or extremely ill animals, and a hyperbaric oxygen chamber for treatment of bacterial infections, deep wounds, and to speed recovery times and response to medications. That’s more services than are available at many human hospitals.
