Atwater Veterinary Center named HOY 2015

February 18, 2015

Congratulations to our Veterinary Economics 2015 Hospital of the Year Winner; Atwater Veterinary Center!


Atwater Vet20a


The Atwater Veterinary Center project was designed to replace an existing 40 year old single story practice whose land and building was taken by the State of California through the process of Eminent Domain. Anticipating the loss of their veterinary hospital and being further compromised by a very short timeline to acquire suitable land and begin the design process, Dr. Chiffelle and her partners turned to rauhaus freedenfeld & associates to come on board immediately to help make it all come together. From seemingly insurmountable odds to acquire the land, the financing, and maintain their business operations in Atwater, this hospital rose like a phoenix from the ashes as a tribute to American exceptionalism and ingenuity to become the 2015 Veterinary Economics Hospital of the Year. The project features a Craftsman style, 5,496 SF single story building with 26 parking spaces, a secured rear service yard to accommodate Doctor’s vehicles along with a covered large animal truck carport, and 3 outdoor runs equipped with Pet Friendly Turf and 7 ft high fence surrounds.
