Here are the latest images from the Center. We have begun the furniture installation in the clinic, and have some of the lighting completed as well.

Here is a shot of the reception area from the front door.

This is the treatment area. The flooring is down, and the exam lights have been installed. Note some of the overhead bins are hung.

This is our surgery suite. The cabinets above come from Herman Miller. By using these Herman Miller products, we will have increased flexibility in our set up. We will be able to change drawer sizes at will, and replacing worn or broken parts is easy.

The units in covered plastic are the medical gas panels.

This is the pack/prep room. The overhead storage has been installed by Herman Miller. The box along the back wall will support a sink. On the far left, is the opening for a pass-through into the surgery suite.

Chicagoland Family Pet Expo

Last week, we attended the Chicagoland Family Pet Expo. In Arlington Heights, this event features exhibitors for a wide variety of pet related products and services. The College of Veterinary Medicine had a booth, and personnel from Chicago and Urbana were on hand to answer questions about pet care and services we offer.

Here are a couple of photos from the day:

This is Dr. Paul, Associate Dean for Public Engagement, on hand to answer questions. Notice our banner promoting the Chicago Clinic. Spinlight, our advertising agency, designed that as a "teaser" for the clinic. Look for more content from them in the coming weeks!

Dr. Rosie LoGiudice, Director of the Chicago Center, was also on hand to promote the new clinic and answer questions.

Drywall and more

We've had a lot of progress since the last update. The walls have dry wall, and painting has begun. The clinic is really starting to take shape.

This first shot shows one of the hallways, painted, and the ceiling grid is in place. The "ladder" above the grid holds all of the networking wires.

This is our bathroom. The sink and toilet have been set. Flooring is soon to come.

And this is taken from our associate's office, looking into the treatment room. The large window provides for a view into the hub of the practice, while still allowing veterinarians a place to enter notes, return phone calls, and discuss cases.
