Ridgeview Animal Hospital was established by Dr. Joanne Gaines in a growing West Omaha in 2001. At the time, Wal-Mart had just opened across the street and Lowe’s was under construction. To the west was nothing but open horizon!
Dr. Gaines had the goal of opening a practice where she could provide progressive, quality veterinary care efficiently and with a personal touch. By 2003, we had two full-time doctors, and in 2005 Dr. Gaines’s husband Adam joined the practice as Business Manager. Soon the hospital building was expanded and we added a third veterinarian. As of today, we have three full-time veterinarians, two part-time veterinarians, and seven licensed veterinary technicians with one relief tech on staff to serve you and your pet!
In 2008, Dr. Gaines opened Walnut Creek Veterinary Clinic in Papillion with BJ Ravnsborg, a classmate from Kansas State University. That partnership also led to the opening of Skyline Veterinary Clinic in Elkhorn in 2016. We are proud of our integrated management approach that is local, non-corporate and allows our teams to collaborate for the benefit of the pets in our community.
At Ridgeview Animal Hospital, we are proud to offer full-service veterinary care for your pet and we make their comfort and happiness our priority. Routine wellness care, advanced diagnostics, surgery, dentistry, behavior, nutrition, on-site lab, pharmacy, grooming and more—we want to be a one-stop resource and a partner in your pet’s health care. All our facilities focus on preventive care and client education to give your pets as many happy, healthy years with you as possible.
Just as they were when Ridgeview first opened, our core values remain intact: we are progressive, compassionate, trustworthy, and most of all, a family. We get to know our clients personally, value their time, and always try to exceed their expectations.
