Years In The Making

Driven by their vision to advance veterinary medical care while fostering an inspiring hospital culture, Drs Michael and Tracy Schlicksup are coming to Columbia to make CVETS a reality. Years in the making, the Schlicksups hope to become a vital institution and resource for South Carolina Veterinarians and the animal owning public.

From the Schlicksups:

Over the past decade, Tracy and I have had the opportunity to work at several excellent hospitals but our dream was always to return to Columbia and start our own practice. After years of hard work and planning, that dream is finally becoming a reality. With Tracy’s experience in emergency medicine and mine in surgery, we saw a need for a new full-service hospital in Columbia.

Our vision for the hospital is to be an emergency referral hospital focused on providing multiple specialties and 24-hour emergency care under one roof. We are working to build a hospital that brings numerous exceptional doctors and staff together in order to provide the highest level of care in the region. As we look forward we want our facility to be as much about our staff as it is the referring veterinarians and clients we serve. It’s with these principles in mind that our motto was born: Exceptional People Providing Excellent Care.

We welcome your calls, emails, and website visits as our project progresses so you can learn more about what CVETS has to offer.
