New Veterinary Hospital wins national design award
Had a chance to chat with an old friend last night, Dr. Paul Ulrich, who was absolutely giddy with the news that his new veterinary clinic (check out his website here) won a prestigious national design award. Paul owns Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital over on Harris Road right off Gosford behind Sam's Club. I've had a chance to tour the place and it looks like a mini hospital with operating rooms, kennels and even a "pet library." It's absolutely gorgeous, which is one of the reasons it received a 2009 Hospital Design Competition Merit Award for Excellence in the 44th annual Veterinary Economics Hospital Design Competition. Paul has both a small and large animal clinic and has been a mainstay veterinarian in Bakersfield for years.
