The James M. Moran, Jr. Critical Care Center at New Bolton Center provides:
- Round-the-clock care for patients suffering from critical illness, including gastrointestinal disease
- Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with specialized staff to care for at-risk pregnant mares and foals needing intensive care (including premature foals)
- 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.
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.
