SAGE Veterinary Centers adds additional practice to their community of hospitals through new partnership with Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Service. The combination expands SAGE’s paw print in central Washington state and provides value to veterinarians.
SAGE Veterinary Centers (“SAGE”), the leading specialty and emergency veterinary organization on the West Coast, is pleased to announce it has expanded once again, partnering with Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Service, the top veterinary ER hospital in Pasco, Washington. Combined with the 2019 acquisition of Yakima Pet Emergency Service, SAGE will advance service offerings to provide patients with the best, most comprehensive veterinary emergency medical care in central Washington.
Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Service was established in the fall of 1996 by a group of local veterinarians with a mission to provide 24-hour weekend coverage for the beloved pets of their area clientele. It has since grown into a seven day a week clinic offering high quality emergency care for companion animals and exotic pets in the growing Tri-Cities market.
“Partnering with the team at Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Service is very exciting for us especially as we continue to grow in central Washington. The team of compassionate, skilled doctors are setting a high standard of care in their region, one that resonates with SAGE’s overall mission. This partnership continues SAGE’s venture into Washington state, a key geography in our expansion throughout the western United States,” said Gina Del Vecchio, SAGE Chief Executive Officer.
Wendi Velando Rankin, DVM, MS, DACVIM (Oncology), SAGE’s Chief Medical Officer, stated “Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Service shares SAGE’s philosophy in the triage of care between pet, pet parent and primary veterinarian. They provide exceptional medical care to the Tri-Cities community and we’re honored that they have decided to join SAGE to continue our outstanding patient care across the West Coast.”
