The James M. Moran, Jr. Critical Care Center at New Bolton Center provides:
- State-of-the-art care for patients suffering from gastrointestinal disease
- A bio-secure environment for animals suffering from infectious diseases
The opening of this facility in 2010 greatly increased the hospital's capacity and ability to care for these types of patients. The specific design of the building is reminiscent of early 20th century historic buildings and is a combination of a barn and a medical hospital.
- It is a single-story structure with two separate wings, one for isolation patients and one for colic patients.
- Both wings have their own procedure rooms, laundry rooms and small antechambers that are used for sterilization.
- The building has an environmentally controlled air circulation system and pressurized central corridors.
- The building is also equipped with technical advances that will make care and monitoring of patients much more efficient and effective.
This innovative facility exemplifies New Bolton Center’s leading role in setting a high-standard of care in equine veterinary medicine.
The facility has become a reality primarily through a combination of state funding and as a generous gift from Elizabeth Moran, given in the memory of her son, James M. Moran, Jr.
