The Veterinary Referral Center of Central Oregon prides itself on providing the highest level of care possible and is continuing that dedication with the opening of a new 27,000-square-foot state-of-the-art hospital. The new facility will allow VRCCO to offer cutting-edge services with the only animal-dedicated MRI in the area, a bone, joint, and spine center along with a food truck court and beer garden open to the public.

Ground was broken in the summer of 2022 with the hospital expected to open late in 2023. VRCCO will continue to operate out of its original location on 1820 Monterey Pines in Bend until the new hospital is open and then will have two locations to better serve the Pacific Northwest Community.


It’s getting harder for us to contain our excitement! Not only is the exterior nearly all in place, the food truck court and beer garden have taken shape on the outside, and the exam rooms and emergency department are in place on the inside. The opening is getting closer and closer!


As the season starts to turn we are getting even closer to the opening of our new facility. The second floor has the drywall up and has almost completely taken shape.


The outside of the building is getting closer to being complete every day. The entrances and first floor have started to take shape.


Progress continues to move quickly as the focus shifts upstairs. The siding is up on the front of the building and the entrances are taking shape.


The walls are so close to going up, you can almost see them in place. The framing is almost done and insulation is already going in.


As the weather has warmed, the construction crew has taken advantage. The front of the building is taking shape, the concrete is down on the second floor and the HVAC is almost fully installed.


The frame is up and the roof installation is coming along great. The second level floor is almost ready for the concrete to be poured.


The hospital structure went up early in the month, and the building started to take shape.


Winter weather started to impact the project but crews fought bitter temps and got out early to pour the foundation.


Sun, snow, rain, or mud the construction crew wasn’t going to let the elements derail the plans to get the shape of the hospital in place.


After groundbreaking took place over the summer, earth started moving shortly after Thanksgiving and initial construction continued into December.


Four years after opening the Veterinary Referral Center of Central Oregon on the west side of Bend, the company broke ground on a 27,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility on the east side of town. Not only is the hospital going to provide human-level care it will provide heroes with onsite childcare and a food truck court and beer garden for the entire community to enjoy.
