Rocky Mountain Small Animal Hospital is located between two major highways that run east to west along either side of the site with the majestic Rocky Mountains off in the distance. The facility's floor plan is divided into three areas: a hospital on the northern side, a canine boarding facility on the southern side, and a shared service core between them. The hospital portion is subdivided again into an outpatient zone and an inpatient zone. The inpatient zone is separated from the outpatient zone by exam rooms. The central treatment room is the nucleus of all inpatient activities. The canine boarding runs are located at the opposite side of the facility. Sandwiched between the hospital and canine boarding is a variety of support functions that are shared between the hospital wards and the boarding wards. Above the hospital are two residential units with commanding views of the mountains.
