Southern Veterinary Partners welcomes Horn Lake Animal Hospital in Horn Lake, Mississippi to our growing network of veterinary hospitals. With this acquisition, Southern Veterinary Partners now has 14 animal hospitals that span across six states. Horn Lake is Southern Veterinary Partners' the first hospital in Mississippi and first 24/7 emergency vet hospital.
Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Southern Veterinary Partners is a veterinarian owned and operated a regional network of animal hospitals in the Southeast with a goal of providing the highest quality veterinary care to companion animals with exceptional client experience.
Jay Price, DVM and CEO of Southern Veterinary Partners says, “In under two years, Southern Veterinary Partners has become the largest veterinary management company based in the Southeast. I am excited that Horn Lake Animal Hospital is our first hospital in Mississippi and it is also our first 24-hour pet emergency hospital. Horn Lake’s veterinarians and staff can now direct their focus to their clients and patients and let Southern Veterinary Partners handle the back office operations and administration.”
Horn Lake Animal Hospital provides preventative care and pet surgical services to pets around Horn Lake, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee and also provides 24/7 pet emergency hospital services. Southern Veterinary Partners welcomes former owner Dr. Scotchie Davis along with associate veterinarians Dr. Stephen Mobley, Dr. Kristie Chavez, Dr. Matt Castellaw and Dr. Carlson Graham and their staff to our team.
Says Dr. Scotchie Davis, “I began Horn Lake Animal Hospital in 1995 and was not thinking about an exit plan or retirement. My main thought was practicing veterinary medicine in the manner I always envisioned, never compromising and always best-in-class. As you get older, thoughts of retirement start entering your mind. Southern Veterinary Partners was started by veterinarians, therefore, they understood my concerns when trying to formulate an exit plan. My biggest concerns were keeping my employees protected and maintaining the same level of quality veterinary medicine and Southern Veterinary Partners ensured my concerns were addressed and met. I recommend Southern Veterinary Partners to any veterinarian that is trying to formulate a plan for retirement.”
Southern Veterinary Partners provides centralized support for the animal hospitals in its network including marketing, HR, finance and inventory and purchasing management. The hospitals retain their names, culture and local commitment to their communities as well as veterinarians and staff that provide their clients with high-quality veterinary care. Southern Veterinary Partners believes that leveraging its infrastructure allows the hospitals in its network to focus on medicine and their patients to facilitate best-in-class veterinary services and exceptional client experiences.
