Owning a veterinary clinic is a true achievement by any measure! It can be rewarding, but at times it can also be stressful and time consuming. Enter People, Pets and Vets, an organization that forms a collaborative partnership with veterinarians. PPV was founded by Dr. Mike Murphy who understands veterinarians’ needs and has developed a solution where both parties win.
Recently, the organization rang the cowbell when they welcomed their first three clinics in California to the family. The company has plans to further expand its California “pawprint,” in addition to existing locations in Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
PPV empowers hospital leaders to focus on patients and staff, while keeping their local identity and medical autonomy. Each hospital receives strategic services, including finance, HR, marketing, operations and IT services. PPV promises new practices that they will be the same or better off than before joining the family.
All 40+ PPV hospitals are supported by their operations manager and regional medical director to ensure they have the resources they need to problem-solve, grow revenue, recruit and develop talent, maintain client relations and obtain clinical support and mentoring.
Dallas LaRose, COO said, “When it comes to providing partnership and support to hospitals, it’s never a one size fits all solution. Each hospital is unique, and we work with our hospital leaders to determine how we can best support them. We bring hospitals into our family because they already have a fantastic team and culture. We meet teams where they want to be, and no matter how much or little support they want, we are always here to help our people and practices succeed.”
