Providing individualized, quality veterinary healthcare is our passion; improving the lives of our patients and communities is our reward.  Our top priority is keeping the pets and people we serve healthy and safe. As a healthcare team, well-being is at the core of all we do.  In October 2019, our hospital came together as a team to clearly define our core values that would guide our company's actions, unite our team in purpose, and transform our company through:

  • Compassion
  • Integrity
  • Collaboration
  • Education

As we continue to bring DCES's values to life inside our hospital, we also recognize we have a responsibility to live out our values in the communities we serve.  To do so, we have created community programs to connect our team members to their local neighborhoods and give them the opportunity to make an even greater impact on the world around them.
