GoodVets targets Kansas City area for expansion
The Chicago-based chain will open a hospital in Lee’s Summit.
GoodVets, which operates two hospitals in downtown Chicago, plans to open a 5,300-square-foot clinic in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City.
Antonio DeMarco, DVM, a 2009 graduate of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, will manage the hospital.
The project is scheduled for completion in May 2019 in the New Longview Commercial District. Besides veterinary care, GoodVets will provide grooming and boarding services.
“GoodVets Lee’s Summit will set the new standard for animal care in greater Kansas City,” said company founder Sabrina Kuo, DVM. “We are thrilled to be joining the community and excited to provide unparalleled care for every pet in Lee’s Summit in a premier, state-of-the-art medical facility.”
Partnering on the project is Box Real Estate Development.
“GoodVets chose New Longview due to Lee’s Summit’s rapid population growth as well as the development’s walkability factor and quality of nearby development activity,” said BoxDevCo’s founding principal, Russell Pearson.
