New Veterinary Teaching Hospital Rendering

With a funding request pending in the Indiana legislature, the College of Veterinary Medicine has created a new website explaining the need for a new Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Headlined, “Support the next generation Purdue Veterinary Teaching Hospital,” the website includes a message from Dean Willie Reed and provides details about how the Veterinary Teaching Hospital benefits Indiana residents. The site explains the hospital’s role in supporting veterinary medical education as well as disease research and medical discovery. The site also lists organizations that have voiced support for the project, includes a set of “Frequently Asked Questions,” and provides a giving link for anyone who wishes to donate toward the new facility.


Purdue University is requesting $73 million in state funding for the new Veterinary Teaching Hospital. In addition, the University has committed $35 million, which is inclusive of PVM fundraising efforts, to the $108 million project. The existing Veterinary Teaching Hospital treats more than 20,000 cases per year and provides the only emergency veterinary medical service in Tippecanoe County. Since the 2009-2010 fiscal year, the hospital caseload has increased by 50%.
