Virginia Tech in Leesburg
In September 2009 the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center (EMC), at 17690 Old Waterford Road at Morven Park, celebrated its 25th anniversary as a teaching hospital in Leesburg. Located in the heart of Virginia thoroughbred country, it has since become a premier full-service equine hospital that offers advanced specialty care, 24-hour emergency treatment and diagnostic services for all ages and breeds of horses.
The EMC is one of three campuses of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, with board certified veterinarians in anesthesia, internal medicine, and surgery, as well as veterinarians in residency training programs, and licensed veterinary technicians. About 2600 horses are admitted to the center each year.
Throughout the year, the center offers a variety of community education and networking events for veterinarians, horse owners, and horse professionals.
The EMC was made possible through a gift from the late Mrs. Marion duPont Scott, the donation of 200 acres of land at Morven Park from the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, and contributions from the private sector.
