Monroe Veterinary Associates (MVA) broke ground on a new 15,000 square foot expansion at Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services (VSES), the only 24-hour veterinary emergency and specialty facility in the greater Rochester area. During the first phase of construction, Duncan’s Center for Veterinary Education, a 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art educational center for veterinary professionals will be completed. Duncan’s Center for Veterinary Education is funded by a generous donation to Duncan’s Fund through Rochester Hope for Pets. Javen Construction is the General Contractor on this project to be completed by the end of 2014.
