The Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Northern Virginia opened as 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.

To serve our patients and community, we 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


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 renamed our practice The Hope Center for Advanced Veterinary Medicine.

The opening of 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 comfortable facility for patients, clients, and staff, and a state of the art hospital for emergency and specialty veterinary medicine.

Announcements were made and ground was broken on our second emergency and specialty center in Rockville, Maryland. We also updated our brand to match this growth by renaming the hospital Hope Advanced Veterinary Center.
