VCA rebuilds Sanibel Animal Hospital destroyed by Hurricane Ian

By Staff | Jun 28, 2024

VCA Animal Hospitals, the global leader of comprehensive veterinary services and part of Mars Veterinary Health, this week announced the reopening of VCA Sanibel Animal Hospital.

The state-of-the-art hospital, spanning 4,100 square feet, has been reconstructed after the original 960-square-foot location was impacted by Hurricane Ian in 2022. The hospital will offer the most extensive set of services for pet owners on Sanibel Island.

Founded in 1965 as Coral Veterinary Clinic, the clinic joined the VCA family in 2017. The hospital provides advanced veterinary care offerings to cats and dogs that were not available at the previous location including dentistry, surgery, medical occupancy, grooming, ultrasound, cold laser, radiology and more.

“As one of the former owners of Coral Veterinary Clinic, the rebuilding of our Hospital is a testament to VCA’s focus on care – for patients, clients, our Associates and communities,” said Jennifer Nichols, hospital manager, VCA Animal Hospitals. “Support from around VCA at the time of Ian helped us activate satellite hospitals surrounding the island to provide care for affected pets and made sure our Associates had immediate supplies and assistance. With community at the center of everything we do, we celebrate our new facility with a stronger and renewed commitment to delivering world-class medical care for pets and personalized experiences for pet owners.”

VCA Sanibel is located at 1509 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. The hours of operations are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturdays. The hospital joins four other VCA facilities surrounding the Sanibel Island community: VCA Baywood and VCA Chiquita in Cape Coral and VCA Coral Animal Hospital and VCA Miracle Mile in Fort Myers.
