Success Story: Pets on Broadway

“PetVet takes care of the business end of the practice, so I don’t have to.”

dr-scolnickThose are the words of Sheryl Scolnick, DVM at Pets on Broadway Animal Hospital in Denver, Colorado. Sheryl and her partner started their general practice from scratch—and after building it into a thriving enterprise, sold it to PetVet Care Centers. “I was looking for an exit strategy,” Sheryl says, “and I discovered PetVet is a great company to sell to.”

Dr. Scolnick on having a pocket full of cash without a day full of hassles:
“PetVet allowed me to cash out, decrease my responsibilities, and take more time off. So now I can enjoy work minus the headaches. One thing that didn’t change is I’m still doing what I love—managing medical cases as I see fit. I have total medical freedom.”

On the business acumen and resources that PetVet brings to the table:
“I love the fact they take over HR functions, accounting, and IT responsibilities, to name just a few. They also give us the buying power that lowers our cost for inventory. PetVet doesn’t just come in and buy your clinic; they strive to make it even better. Within the first month, for example, they upgraded 75% of all the computers and monitors, and installed a new server.”

On working with the PetVet hospital acquisition team:
“I had no reservations about selling once I spoke with PetVet’s CEO, Gino Volpacchio, and his Business Development Manager, Uri Failla. I had a great connection with them. I trusted them. And I knew that after I completed my transaction with them, they would take the practice to the next level.”
