History of the Hospital
Founded by Dr. William R. Cooper in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, St. Francis Hospital for Animals has been serving the healthcare needs of pets since 1996. As a sole practitioner, Dr. Cooper grew his practice providing personal, tender care for each patient. In 2014, the practice moved to its current location on Kettering Drive in Charlotte that has more space allowing for the expansion of pet care services.
In 2018, Dr. Jaime Kozelka joined the growing practice bringing a fresh perspective and great enthusiasm. The combination of Dr. Kozelka and Dr. Cooper and their knowledge, passion, and experience, makes St. Francis Hospital for Animals the place where your pets will find the path towards happy, healthy, long and pain-free lives.
“To help pets live happy, healthy, long and pain-free lives.” We believe that bigger is not always better. At St. Francis Hospital for Animals we offer a small-town atmosphere with the convenience of a city location. Our practice offers cutting-edge medical and surgical technology, while maintaining a personal relationship with you and your pet. We aspire to develop the human-animal bond, helping you grow into the best human companion possible!
