St. Joe Center Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1967 by Drs. David Thoma and Roy Coolman. St. Joe started out in a converted grain elevator on Maplecrest Road. We have seen many changes evolve since then. In 1992, St. Joe moved into the building that is now known as NIVES. In order to improve the level of veterinary care in the community, 24 hour Emergency Services became available in 1996. Then in 2004, St. Joe separated from the Emergency and Specialty Hospital and moved into our present location to serve as a full service veterinary hospital with a focus on primary care.
We provide comprehensive medical, surgical, and dental care to our patients. Diagnostic procedures are available through in-house testing and external laboratories. Our hospital has a pharmacy, surgery suite, X-ray capabilities, grooming services for canines, indoor boarding kennels and outdoor walking areas.
