Dr. Nichole Danova and a small staff founded the Veterinary Surgical Center (VSC) in 2009. At the time, Danova was working as a referral surgeon in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre metro area and received overwhelming encouragement from both clients and referring veterinarians alike to create a special surgical referral service. VSC became a successful referral service and quickly grew into plans for a larger, full-service veterinary hospital. Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center (VREC) was established not long after and opened its doors in Clarks Summit, PA in May 2010.
VREC is one of the largest and most inclusive veterinary facilities in northeast Pennsylvania and the only one of its kind in Lackawanna County. Since opening our doors in 2010, the demand for services offered has grown exponentially. As services grew, our staff grew as well. Today we employ over 50 staff members, all of whom are trained to best meet the needs of our patients, clients, and referring veterinarians.
