Friendship Hospital for Animals, one of the largest veterinary hospitals in the Washington, D.C., area, announced Feb. 19 that it has broken ground on a major expansion of its facility.

The addition to the hospital’s second floor will double the building’s size and allow Friendship to provide new services by 2015, including neurology, rehabilitation, CAT Scans and MRIs, advanced critical care, a board-certified anesthesiologist, and a pain clinic offering acupuncture and massage, the hospital wrote in an e-newsletter.

Friendship, located at 4105 Brandywine St. NW in D.C., already provides primary, specialty and emergency care, and those services will remain "fully functional" throughout the construction project, the hospital said.

Friendship’s parking garage will be closed during the construction, which is expected to last through the fall of 2014. Street parking is available in front of the hospital and throughout the neighborhood. Starting March 1, parking also will be available in the Public Tenley lot at the corner of Brandywine St. and Wisconsin Ave.

Updates on the project will be posted on Friendship’s Facebook page.

The 24-hour hospital has been in business for more than 75 years and employs 18 staff doctors.
