Officials from Purdue University and the Indiana Department of Agriculture will Friday afternoon dedicate the new David and Bonnie Brunner Purdue Veterinary Medical Hospital Complex. The 162,500-square-foot complex consists of three components, including a new small animal hospital, an equine hospital and a farm animal hospital.

The facility is named in honor Dr. David Brunner and his wife Bonnie who donated $10 million towards construction of the $108 million veterinary hospital. Brunner owns Broad Ripple Animal Clinic and graduated from Purdue.

The university says the new facilities feature the latest equipment to enhance patient care, accommodate increased caseload, and optimize hands-on learning for veterinary students.
