Upon approval by the Iowa Board of Regents, Iowa State University will purchase Iowa Veterinary Specialties in Des Moines. The university announced their plans to purchase the emergency and specialty care hospital yesterday. The purchase will join the IVS as a part of ISU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
Officials say that the college’s current medical center, Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center, and Iowa Veterinary Specialties will continue to operate separately and will remain in their current locations.
“The timing is right for creating this affiliation. Our hospital has grown considerably throughout its 30-year history and is well positioned for future growth. Iowa State can help IVS recognize its potential much sooner than would be otherwise,” said one of the founders of IVS.
