SAGE Veterinary Centers Officially Broke Ground in Their New Hospital in Meridian Park
Concord, Calif. (April 12, 2021) – SAGE Veterinary Centers is excited to announce the official groundbreaking on their new 25,000 sq. foot hospital located at 2055 Meridian Park Blvd. The next generation facility will allow SAGE to significantly expand its specialty, emergency, and urgent care services to the East Bay community.
The new state of the art facility features advanced surgery suites, as well as sophisticated trauma response and critical care capabilities and will house modern clinical equipment including CT, MRI, and ultrasound technology. Further expansion of SAGE’s existing services is planned given the ongoing and strong demand for specialized services in Neurology, Cardiology, and Urgent Care.
“The new hospital will be transformative for our clinical staff and for pets and their people in the surrounding communities. We are planning to add 50 jobs in the subsequent two years with additional job openings beyond that time. Our investment reflects our commitment to providing the most advanced level of patient care to serve our growing East Bay community of pet parents and to providing an outstanding work environment for our highly valued team members” says Gina Del Vecchio, SAGE’s CEO.
To celebrate the groundbreaking, SAGE hosted a ceremony with the Concord Chamber of Commerce, and members of the Concord hospital team.
“We are excited to have SAGE part of the Concord Chamber Community. The convenience of their new location will be a big benefit to pet owners in Concord and beyond. On a personal note, my family has taken our dogs to SAGE for years and has had nothing but great service and the feeling of genuine care and compassion from the entire staff,” says Kevin Cabral President/CEO, Concord Chamber of Commerce.
Interior demolition for the new hospital will began mid-April with Wells Construction. Construction for the new hospital will not impact current operations and services will continue at the Monument Boulevard Hospital. SAGE Veterinary Centers expects to move from the current Monument Boulevard hospital and begin to see patients in the new hospital by early 2022.
