Pathway hospital group is now Pathway Vet Alliance
Pathway Vet Alliance sees itself as a "change agent for good" in the veterinary industry. The message is reflected on employee T-shirts.

The veterinary management group Pathway has renamed itself Pathway Vet Alliance.

The change is intended to “better convey the company’s unique people-focused culture,” the company reported March 2.

“This rebrand is an amazing opportunity to better communicate our company culture and values,” said CEO Stephen Hadley, DVM, MS.

Pathway Vet Alliance added nearly 100 hospitals in 2017, raising the total to more than 125 general, emergency and specialty hospitals across 26 states. The company, which partially or completely owns the hospitals, moved into a larger headquarters this year in Austin, Texas, to accommodate its growth.

Pathway Vet Alliance employees more than 2,500 people across its network.

The rebranding will be celebrated in early March during the WVC conference in Las Vegas. Pathway will donate $5 on behalf of each scanned booth visitor to one of three charities: the American Humane Association, the American Veterinary Medical Foundation’s Veterinary Care Charitable Fund and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
