The team is an integral part of our hospital. They allow us to provide the best service possible at all times. All of our registered technicians complete many hours of continuing education every year to stay up to date on the best quality medicine. They also participate in lunch-n-learn activities with the doctors on a regular basis. These activities are one reason we are closed from 12 until 2 pm on Fridays.
