University of Tennessee Continues Equine Hospital Expansion

The expansion of the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center Equine and Farm Animal Hospitals is forging ahead as planned.

According to the university's website, the $20.9 million project encompasses about 85,000 square feet and includes amenities such as a new neonatal intensive care unit, new equine surgery suites, and a hyperbaric oxygen chamber.

Throughout construction, the university has produced several videos introducing the public to the new amenities that will soon be available. In addition to the aforementioned amenities, video topics include a new Orthopedic Diagnostic Center, new isolation units, and the college's field veterinary services. Links to all the videos are available on the university's website.

According to the website, the project's completion date is February 2013.
