History

The emergency department of The Hope Center has been in operation since 1977 and was first named the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Northern Virginia (EVC). It was one of the first after-hours emergency veterinary hospitals in the country and EVC became a staple in the Northern Virginia community as the only clinic for after hours and weekend emergency pet care.

On June 1, 2002, EVC became a 24/7 emergency center and we opened our doors with the intention of never closing them again.  Board-certified surgeons, cardiologists, and internal medicine specialists began seeing patients during the daytime hours and our  name was briefly changed to the Emergency Veterinary & Specialty Center.

The Emergency Veterinary & Specialty Center

140 Park Street



We outgrew our building on Maple Avenue and began designing our facility on Park Street in the heart of Vienna. Due to the evolution EVC experienced from an after-hours ER to a 24/7 multi-specialty center for pets, we re-named our practice The Hope Center for Advanced Veterinary Medicine. The following year, we added our Ophthalmology department for the treatment of veterinary ocular conditions. On February 6, 2008 we opened our new hospital at 140 Park Street SE. The building housed every existing Hope Center department along with new services such as Oncology and CT Scanning. The increased space and design throughout the building has made it a much more comfortable facility for patients, clients, and staff.

To meet the growing needs of the community, Acupuncture, Nutrition, Physical Rehabilitation and Neurology departments have also opened in the hospital.
