What our members have to say about VSPA….

 

VSPA has been the spring board that we needed to grow our practice from about 70 employees and 22 doctors occupying a 9000 Ft Sq building in 2006, to our current hospital that occupies a 35,000 ft sq building, employing about 320 staff and over 50 doctors representing 14 different disciplines.  Through VSPA, we have been able to develop budgets, compare best practices with other similar multispecialty hospitals and develop the complex organizational structure that a business of our size requires.  VSPA consists of a like-minded group of clinicians and administrators dedicated to the advancement of specialty and emergency medicine.  If you struggle with the management of your practice, VSPA could be the difference maker between frustration and success in growing your dream practice.

VSPA has proven to be an important forum for our practice leaders to gain insight into strategic issues.
The conferences and listserv hosted by VSPA offer educational sessions and networking specific to specialty veterinary hospitals, affording exclusive opportunities for benchmarking, best practices and networking that are difficult to find elsewhere in our industry. Collaborating with VSPA’s entrepreneurs and thought leaders since its inceptions has been a key factor in our practice’s development and growth.

VSPA has provided me with invaluable information, key operational benchmarks and member support through bi-annual meetings, practical survey results and confidential list serve discussions.  This information greatly contributed to increased revenues, profit margin, standards of medicine and overall organizational culture improvement.  Since joining VSPA we have doubled in size and are opening a second location.  I believe this accelerated growth in largely due to VSPA
