Renovations and Livestock Service Updates
Renovations to the Livestock Services receiving area are underway to enhance patient handling services! The clinic is NOT closed during this period and will continue to provide service. We are now accepting routine appointments again, however we are still implementing protocols due to COVID-19 to help protect the health and well-being of our community and hospital members. You can access the updated protocols here.
To schedule an appointment, please call 785-532-5700. For all appointments during normal business hours (Monday – Friday; 8 a.m. -5 p.m.) please pull around to the gravel lot east of the hospital and check in at the Large Animal Desk.
For all emergencies afterhours, please check in at the Emergency Desk on the west side of the building before pulling around back. Personnel will meet you and provide instruction for drop-off and/or pickup.
Please excuse the construction as we work to make improvements for our service. We appreciate your commitment to the VHC and understanding through this project and challenging time.
