NC State veterinary school to build equine center, expand hospital

November 28, 2023

The North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine will expand and renovate the institution’s Large Animal Hospital with the support of $70 million from the recently approved state budget.

Due to the large number of local farm animals, the current Large Animal Hospital in Raleigh lacks the space needed to accommodate and treat additional animals.

Expansion and renovations include adding a surgery wing, intensive care wing, lameness arena, integrated modern equipment and additional isolation space for animals with infectious diseases.

The budgetary boost will also help build an Equine Veterinary Center to better accommodate horses and livestock. Currently in the early design stages, the new equine facility will include a medical center and hospital. It will also house all of the school’s equine clinical teaching, including integrated research laboratories that will facilitate “state-of-the-art” programs in regenerative medicine and gastrointestinal health. Construction for the expansion project is expected to begin in 2026.
