Greencross’ Animal Referral Hospital (ARH) Minchinbury in Western Sydney has officially opened its doors.

The purpose-built site features nine consultation rooms, three operating theatres, a Critical Care Unit and dedicated cat and dog waiting areas as well as separate wards for both feline and canine pets.

Dr Kyle Song BVSc, MANZCVS (Surgery), Head of Surgery Service and Hospital Director, said the opportunity to lead the team at ARH Minchinbury is a humbling experience.

“Australia has one of the highest pet ownerships in the world and being able to have such a profound impact on their lives and that of their owners is really special.

“Working as a veterinarian in a Specialty and Emergency hospital is incredibly rewarding because every day we have the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of pets. I’m looking forward to serving the pets and their owners in the local Minchinbury community and providing exceptional patient care.”

ARH Minchinbury is the latest addition to Greencross’ veterinary network and features the newest and latest technology with an advanced diagnostic imaging suite, featuring a brand-new human grade 1.5 Tesla MRI, CT, X-Ray, Fluoroscopy, Ultrasound, Endoscopy as well as an onsite laboratory.  

Greencross’ Vet Services business is led by Chief Operating Officer Dr Michelle Dries, whose team is heavily vet-led, consisting of vets and vet nurses who have years of clinical and specialist emergency experience.

The opening of the site brings Greencross’ veterinary network to over 160 GP clinics, 23 Specialist and Emergency hospitals, and adjacent specialty businesses across the country.

It follows a strong period of growth for Greencross Pet Wellness Company following several successful new partnerships, including the Centre for Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) and the newly established Greencross Vet Hospital located at the University of Melbourne.
