Oshkosh, WI (January 15, 2007) – ImproMed, Inc. is pleased to announce that Windsor Veterinary Clinic of Windsor, CO, has been chosen as the 2006 ImproMed Community Contributor of the Year Award recipient. Once a year, ImproMed selects a client who provides outstanding contributions to their local community to receive this award.
As a practice, Windsor Veterinary Clinic PC believes in giving back to the community. Throughout the years, the hospital set up a program with Hospice and Palliative Care to take over deceased owner's pets, hosted a community-wide pet remembrance ceremony and distributed Sentinel to canine members of the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners, provided oxygen masks to their local fire department for dogs and cats, and participated in the Windsor Park and Recreation Department July 4th 4-legged 4k fun run and walk.
Much of the Windsor Veterinary Clinic's volunteer work comes in the form of mentoring students, ranging in age from college students down to elementary school students. The hospital has hosted students from around the world and rare is the week that the hospital does not have at least one student in the hospital.
Windsor also adopted a local senior citizen in 2000, assisting her with errands, cleaning, purchasing her medications, and providing care to her dog. In the six years before Edna Fortier passed away, a team member visited her or called her daily, and Sharon DeNayer served as her Hospice Volunteer in the last few weeks of her life.
Team members at Windsor have also served on the volunteer boards for Veterinary Economics, Veterinary Medicine and Firstline magazines.
Volunteerism in the hospital is proven through the numerous committees the hospital's owner, Dr. Robin Downing, has participated in. Dr. Downing has served as a trustee for the Morris Animal Foundation for nearly 10 years, co-chairs the American Animal Hospital Association's task for on developing animal pain management guidelines, founded and serves as President of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, is an advisor to the Weld County Humane Society, and has served on numerous committees for the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association.
ImproMed is proud to acknowledge Windsor Veterinary Clinic PC for all of their outstanding achievements with the 2nd Annual ImproMed Community Contributor of the Year award, and commends Windsor Veterinary Clinic PC for a job well done.
