One of the largest and best known vet clinics in Warsaw, the Bemowo Veterinary Clinic, is the most recent addition to the LuxVet Group, a leading veterinary healthcare group in Poland.
Bemowo Veterinary Clinic, located at Powstancow Slaskich 101 in Warsaw, was founded over 30 years ago by Pawel Kowalczyk, DVM, a well-known expert in endoscopy, who continues to run the Clinic today.
The practice offers 24/7 veterinary care, and has five consultation and treatment rooms, two operating rooms, a laboratory, diagnostic imaging, and a small pet hospitalization area. It was founded as one of the first private vet practices in Warsaw and has since become a round-the-clock veterinary clinic, providing specialized and emergency care for pets.
The team is comprised of 65 people, including a clinical team of 40 veterinarians and 10 vet nurses, which allows the Bemowo Clinic to offer a broad range of specialized services, including general surgery, orthopedics, soft tissue surgery, emergency care, trauma treatment and endoscopy, as well as cardiology, oncology, neurology, ophthalmology and dentistry. Bemowo also works with academic lecturers and external specialists for diagnostic imaging, exotic animal care treatment, etc.
Based on the agreements signed with the LuxVet Group, Pawel Kowalczyk will continue to oversee the practice and will also become the Group’s Medical Director and play a key role in building the first referral pet hospital the Group is planning to open in Warsaw.
The LuxVet Group will invest in renovating the Clinic, refurbishing the interior and adapting it to the needs of disabled customers to facilitate access for both patients and caregivers. The Group will also support the practice in the area of business administration and accounting, operations, purchasing, HR and recruitment, IT, and marketing. The team will have access to the Group’s training and knowledge exchange program as well as employee benefits, such as private healthcare.
