Barn With a Twist, New CSU Family Equine Hospital
Horse owners from all over the state and all over the country come to CSU for equine care. CSU can do things normal horse vets can't. Now, they have taken it a big gallop forward. The new Johnson Family Equine Hospital is a nice barn to the horse, but a fantastic hospital for their needs.
The Colorado State University’s equine veterinary services were inside the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, but this new much larger space is only for equine medicine and care.
According to CSU's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, "the new equine hospital was built to provide extra space for individual horses and improve personalized care. Not just for the patients’ comfort, but also to allow clients to be more involved in their horse’s care." This includes "side-by-side rounds rooms – and even a separate, on-site equine pharmacy – the Johnson Family Equine Hospital creates a modern-day medical world built specifically for horses."
A $10 million gift from Helen and Arthur Johnson made the new CSU equine hospital possible.
The new building provides amazing observation opportunities for students doing CSU equine research.
