Partner Veterinarian Will Bring State-of-the-Art Companion Animal Care and New Jobs to Frederick, MD

We are committed to expanding our footprint in the currently underserved region while attracting talented teammates who are as committed to the community as we are.

State-of-the-art urgent, emergency and specialty care for pet families is coming to Frederick, MD.

Led by an acclaimed team of female entrepreneurs, Partner Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center (PVESC) is thrilled to announce plans for its new location, which will open at the Frederick Crossing Mall. Located at 7330 Guilford Drive in the former location of AC Moore, the 20,000 square foot facility provides support to an economically growing market. PVESC plans to hire more than 70 team members to help pets and their families receive 24-hour emergency services and access to related urgent and specialized care.

As Frederick County experiences years of rapid growth, PVESC President and Frederick Local, Christine Stafford, recognized the need for a variety of enhanced pet care options when major veterinary offices are closed or unavailable. “The new location is a perfect fit for us and the community. The opening of new businesses is a positive sign of economic growth, and we are honored to be part of the Frederick community in this capacity,” said Stafford. The facility will create full-time and part-time positions, including veterinary specialists, emergency physicians, care advocates and nursing. “We are committed to expanding our footprint in the region that is currently underserved while attracting talented teammates who are as committed to the community as we are,” she said.

With construction soon underway, the location is expected to be ready by spring 2023 and will offer three levels of services under one roof. Emergency care sees animals suffering from problems such as allergic reactions, vomiting, or eye and skin irritation. Emergency care will be offered for cases such as acute trauma, heat stroke or weakness. The specialty care arm of the practice provides internal medicine, neurology, medical oncology, surgery, and internal MRI and CT scans.

PVESC CEO Katie Brooks is dedicated to making positive changes in her profession and looks forward to Partner Veterinary immersing itself in the Frederick community. “I started in this industry to care for pets. I’m staying in it to support people and provide pet families with top-notch care, while reimagining what a team approach looks like and true life balance within my profession. Brooks looks forward to bringing this approach to Frederick as well as connecting with other local caregivers. “Building strong partnerships with primary care veterinarians is important to us. so they know they can trust us to provide continuity of care for pet families in the Frederick area,” she added.
