The Hamilton Spectator - - BUSINESS -

The Blue Cross An­i­mal Hos­pi­tal has com­pleted a ma­jor ren­o­va­tion and ex­pan­sion.

The hos­pi­tal now in­cludes six treat­ment rooms, an op­er­at­ing theatre and up­dated di­ag­nos­tic equip­ment.

A rib­bon-cut­ting cer­e­mony is be­ing held July 8 at 1 p.m. fol­lowed by an open house.

Built in 1934, Blue Cross — at 612 King St. W. — is Canada’s first pur­pose-built an­i­mal hos­pi­tal. Founder Dr. Jean Rum­ney was one of the first fe­male vet­eri­nar­i­ans in Canada to grad­u­ate from Guelph’s On­tario Ve­teri­nary Col­lege.
