Some say the Northern Liberties neighborhood in Philadelphia is “up-and-coming;” others say, its already arrived. This former manufacturing district has become one of the city’s hottest spots, commingling like-minded residents and entrepreneurs with a network of bars, restaurants, boutiques and, most importantly, the bustling 2nd Street Animal Hospital.
Opening its doors in 2018 under the direction of Dr. Michael Weiss, 2nd Street Animal Hospital encapsulates the high-end feel of its neighborhood, providing exceptional care to small animals and exotics in a state of the art, AAHA-accredited facility. The hospital has even been recognized as the #1 Exotic Pet Veterinarian Hospital in the Philly region with over 25 years’ experience treating these pets.
To keep up with the rapid growth of the practice, Dr. Weiss reached out to Monarch Business Advisors to help him find a business partner. To help differentiate from the many groups he was being introduced to, the Innovetive Petcare team hosted a curated meeting, bringing in members of the finance, human resources, marketing, and operations teams. This offered Dr. Weiss a peek “behind the curtain” at what day-to-day life would look like in partnership with us, and how it might further allow him to focus on his passions, exotic animal care and mentorship of younger veterinarians.
Dr. Weiss describes these meetings as…
“Very positive- the honesty and care about their hospitals made you feel like you weren’t just a number.”
The entire team at Innovetive Petcare is thrilled to welcome the 2nd Street family to our network and hopes our growth in Philadelphia mirrors the boom Northern Liberties has experienced!
