MVA co-founder Dr. James Dougherty has been named the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association’s 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award winner!!

The award honors a veterinarian who has demonstrated a lifetime of selfless dedication to veterinary medicine, the health and welfare of animals, and the betterment of the profession. What a fitting tribute to Dr. Dougherty, who thirty years ago this year, shared the vision to create the premier emergency and specialty hospital in our area. And through the years, has helped assemble a carefully curated team of talented and dedicated doctors, nurses, and support staff that functions more as a family than mere co-workers. All in pursuit of providing the best care to our clients and their families.

We couldn’t be prouder. CONGRATULATIONS JIM!!
