Our History

Sturgis Veterinary Hospital & Equine Center opened its doors in 1952 with Dr. J.A. Chamley and his wife Annie at the reigns. In 1971, the current owner, Dr. John Ismay, purchased the hospital.

Raised by a ranching family in the high mountains of southwestern Colorado, Dr. Ismay is no stranger to hard work. His vision for a high-tech specialty center resulted in a hospital dedicated to raising the standard of excellence for equine and companion animal medicine and surgery.
