Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic joins the LuxVet Group


Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic in the LuxVet Group.

The LuxVet Group expands its range and reputation by acquiring the Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic, run by a well-known authority among veterinarians, DVM Ph.D. Dorota Pomorska-Handwerker and Łukasz Handwerker. Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic is a modern facility providing comprehensive veterinary services for animals at Aleja Kraśnicka 89 in Lublin.

The Polyclinic team consists of experienced professionals, including 5 veterinary specialists, 4 veterinary technicians/assistants and 2 administrative staff members. The Polyclinic provides specialized services in the field of spinal surgery, orthopedics, general surgery, diagnostic imaging (including computer tomography), dermatology, allergology, internal medicine, endocrinology, cardiology, and dentistry.

Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic is a modern center for veterinary medicine, operating based on the latest European standards. The facility is very well equipped and has its own CT (computed tomography), which makes it one of the most advanced clinics in Poland. It has many specialized rooms, including 4 consult rooms, a laboratory, 2 modern operating rooms, 2 hospitals, a CT room and an imaging diagnostics laboratory, where radiological, ultrasound and electrocardiographic scans are performed. These rooms have been designed to provide comprehensive patient care as well as to serve the continuous development of modern veterinary medicine.

Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic stands out not only for its high quality of medical services but also for its exceptional interior design. The clinic’s interiors are functional and stylish, creating a harmonious space where both patients and veterinary staff can feel comfortable. The materials, colors, and architectural details are carefully selected to create a pleasant and peaceful environment. The Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic is distinguished by its unique aesthetics and distinctive style, making it one of the most attractive veterinary medical centers in Poland.

- As a veterinarian and entrepreneur, achieving a work-life balance is challenging. ``Work-life balance`` practically does not exist in our profession. Our work as veterinarians is our passion and calling, but often we have to work alone, under time pressure, competition, financial burdens, and risks.

We treat our businesses like our children. But children need to spread their wings and allow them to fly; that's the maturity of their parents. The time has come for the Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic as well. Today, we release it from our wings, but we will continue working for its development and observe it growing stronger.

The integration with LuxVet Group opens vast opportunities for the Polyclinic's growth. As veterinarians, we dedicate ourselves fully to our businesses, which makes relinquishing control challenging. However, I know that LuxVet Group will provide the Polyclinic with a stable future and continue its mission of delivering the highest quality veterinary care. I am also pleased that through the integration, the Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic will gain support in various areas that are sometimes challenging for us, such as administration, accounting, operational management, procurement, human resources, IT support, and marketing. The training program will enable our doctors and entire team to continuously learn and enhance their qualifications, while private medical care will serve as an additional benefit for employees.

Of course, we hand over our Polyclinic with mixed emotions. It is a very difficult and complex moment. We feel pride, satisfaction, great nostalgia, concern, but also immense relief. I am convinced that now is the time for further tremendous development and success of ``our creation.`` By joining LuxVet Group, we also open up new possibilities for collaboration and knowledge exchange with doctors from other healthcare facilities – after all, we will be working together. Together, we will continue our mission of providing the best care for animals and their owners.

Now, I look to the future with optimism and am delighted that the time I previously devoted to paperwork will be redirected to what I love. I certainly won't start running, crocheting, or playing musical instruments (laughs), but I will have more time for my passion, which is dermatology, clinical work, and social activities for the betterment of our profession. - says DVM Ph.D. Dorota Pomorska-Handwerker.

- We are very happy that the Lublin Veterinary Polyclinic has joined the LuxVet Group. It is a well-known facility, highly appreciated by the veterinary community and animal owners in Lublin. We will be proud to continue to develop the reputation and unique character of the Polyclinic, providing the highest quality of services. - says Piotr Zajączkowski, President of the LuxVet Group.
