National pet insurance provider, Petplan, announced The Drake Center for Veterinary Care has been selected as one of three finalists for its 2014 “Practice of the Year” award. The Drake Center’s nomination stood out along with 11 others from more than 3,100 submissions Petplan received from pet parents across the country.
“We are delighted to continue highlighting the work of outstanding veterinary hospitals across the country,” said Natasha Ashton, co-CEO and co-founder of Petplan. “We were impressed that The Drake Center not only provides a consistently exceptional level of care to our four-legged family members, but also demonstrates leadership and a strong desire to help pet parents become better partners in pet health.”
Now in its third year, the Petplan Veterinary Awards honor the important work of America’s veterinary professionals. This is the first year Petplan will recognize a veterinary practice as a whole, in addition to outstanding individuals in the field.
“The Drake Center is very excited to be considered for this award,” Dr. Michele Drake, the hospital’s founder and CEO, said. “We continue to push ourselves to provide the best care for our patients and unsurpassed service for our clients. It is great to be recognized for our commitment to this level of care and service.”
The Drake Center will next be evaluated by Petplan’s accomplished Veterinary Awards Judging Panel, comprised of prominent pet health professionals and veterinarians.
In February, Dr. Drake and three other representatives from The Drake Center will attend the 2014 Veterinary Awards Dinner, held during the 86th annual Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas, where the winners be announced in four categories – “Veterinarian of the Year,” “Veterinary Practice Manager of the Year,” “Veterinary Technician of the Year” and “Practice of the Year.”
