New Haven Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine Relocates and Expands Services

Pet hospital moves to larger, more convenient location, changes name


New Haven Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine has expanded to meet the needs of its patients and pet owners and moved to a new location at the Crossroads Medical Center in North Haven.

“The initial driving force behind the relocation was our clients’ need for more medical services,” said Kenneth Aldrich, hospital administrator.  “While the expansion is designed to advance patient care, the new building offers additional comfort and convenience for pet owners.”

With a new location also comes a new name, as the hospital has reopened as Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine following the move into its new home.

The larger building allows Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine to offer additional medical services, including ophthalmology and canine rehabilitation, with space that includes 12 exam rooms, six operating rooms, an intensive care unit and more.

The hospital’s new site also improves the pet owner experience with significantly more parking, a large waiting room plus kids’ area and a convenience space with refreshments.  The Crossroads Medical Center in North Haven is located off exit 10 on I-91, highly accessible from I-95, I-91, the Merritt Parkway, I-84 via 691 and Route 80. 

Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine offers emergency care, critical care and surgical services 24 hours a day, seven days a week and includes the following services:

·        New: Ophthalmology

·        New: Canine rehabilitation, including underwater treadmill

·        New: Minimally invasive surgery

“We’re excited to move our practice to the medical park in North Haven so we can continue the high level of care pet owners have come to expect and we remain committed to,” Aldrich said.  “For more than 35 years, our team has worked hard to serve the needs of the New Haven community, and we look forward to bringing our veterinary expertise and care to our new home in North Haven.”

Located in North Haven, Conn., Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine is an emergency referral facility open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Formed in 1975 by a group of six veterinarians who wanted to offer overnight care, the hospital has continued to expand and offer additional specialists in the areas of dermatology, behavioral care, radiology and surgery.  For more information, visit http://centralpetvet.com/index.html.  Like us on Facebook.

The care my cats received at Central Veterinary Hospital through the years has always been top notch. When my 14 year old diabetic cat developed pneumonia, Central Veterinary not only used the most up to date drugs and treatment, but made her very comfortable in every way, and allowed me to spend time with her throughout, helping her to heal. Another cat I had, had swallowed a toy which was stuck in deep in her digestive tract--and this hospital actually procured a specialist in endoscopic procedures--who skillfully removed the object during surgery, and she recovered quickly. The staff has always been very friendly, warm, and reassuring to me and others, when we brought our pets in for emergencies, etc. I am so pleased to know that this great veterinary hospital has expanded its space and services--and it is most reassuring that they are open 24/7 for pet emergencies.
