September 27, 2011, Volume 58, No. 03

Beginning Monday, October 3, 2011, Penn and Penn Medicine employees will be eligible for a 10% discount on all specialty services offered at Penn Vet’s Ryan Hospital. In addition, Ryan Hospital will be offering a new Drop-off Service as another added convenience for employees.

About the Drop-off Service at Penn Vet’s Ryan Hospital

This new service will offer specialty medical care for dogs, cats, and avian and exotic animal companions. World-class diagnostic imaging capabilities, exceptional surgical suites, an intensive care unit, and a variety of revolutionary technologies support their clinicians in the analysis and diagnosis of conditions in animals. Services they offer include, but are not limited to:

•   Behavior

•   Dentistry and oral surgery

•   Internal medicine

•   Neurology

•   Oncology

•   Ophthalmology

•   Minimally invasive surgery

•   Radiology

•   Rehabilitation and pain management

•   Dermatology

•   Cardiology

•   Nephrology

•   Radiation Therapy

Employees, as part of the Penn family, will be able to make an appointment through the Ryan Hospital appointment desk (215-746-8387) where they will indicate their affiliation with the University and be scheduled an appointment with the appropriate specialty.

On the day of their pet’s scheduled appointment, employees may drop off their pet at the front entrance of Ryan Hospital, located at 39th & Spruce, and come to the pet’s initial exam with a veterinarian.  The employee will pick up the pet at the end of the workday by 7 p.m.  A valid University ID will be required to receive the 10% discount on services and payment in full will be expected at time of pet discharge.

To learn more about Ryan Hospital and this new benefit for employees, as well as for an opportunity to talk with faculty clinicians and tour the facilities, an Open House is slated for September 27 from 3:30–6 p.m. at the Hospital’s Rosenthal Imaging and Treatment Center. To RSVP, contact Darleen Coles, at coles@vet.upenn.edu or (215) 746-2421.
