Ribbon-cutting held for Perry Hall Animal Hospital addition

Perry Hall Animal Hospital Ribbon-CuttingA local animal hospital is growing.

A ribbon-cutting was held on Wednesday morning for the new addition at Perry Hall Animal Hospital.

In 2012, the Baltimore County Council created the Perry Hall commercial revitalization district, and the Perry Hall Animal Hospital was one small business that took advantage of the incentives offered through the program.

On Wednesday, the ribbon was cut on the new addition at the hospital, where the workforce has grown from 6 to 22 employees.

The addition allows for more medical treatment space, a much needed staff break room and conference room, as well as an expansion of services.

In 2016, the animal hospital demolished a decrepit building, expanding its parking area and improving the landscaping near Belair Road and India Avenue. Baltimore County recognized the Perry Hall Animal Hospital with an award in 2015 for its landscaping work, which has beautified this entire stretch of Belair Road.

“The Perry Hall Animal Hospital is proud to be part of Downtown Perry Hall,” commented Michele Deschu, Co-Owner and Practice Manager. “With our accessible location, we serve customers from throughout Baltimore County and beyond.”

Fifth District Councilman David Marks was on hand on Wednesday morning, along with representatives from the Perry Hall White Marsh Business Association.

“The Perry Hall Animal Hospital is precisely the type of small business we wanted to help with the revitalization district,” said Marks, whose legislation created the zone.

Brightview Perry Hall holds ribbon-cutting on expansion wing

BrightView Perry Hall Ribbon CuttingA ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday morning for the opening of Brightview Perry Hall’s newest wing.

The new, final wing at the senior living facility includes 213 units.

The addition features one- and two-bedroom apartment homes as well as amenity and gathering spaces including a bistro-style dining venue with a brick pizza oven, an expanded sports pub, movie theater and game room with pool table, shuffle board, and poker table.

“This is our last expansion,” notes Andrew Teeters, Vice President of Development. “(With the campus complete), it (includes) the additional Independent Living apartment homes, outdoor recreational areas, open natural spaces, and a wooded walking path.”

“It is unmatched in the area.”

Added Councilman David Marks, “I supported Brightview Perry Hall because I wanted a place where senior citizens from our area could remain close to their families. Brightview Perry Hall has also created jobs for our community and strengthened the nearby shopping center. We are proud to have Brightview in Perry Hall.”

Designed by Baltimore-based architectural team at Hord Coplan Macht, Brightview Perry Hall used nearby historic Perry Hall mansion as its design inspiration and is reminiscent of the Early Georgian architectural style of the mansion, characterized by elegant proportions and loose symmetry along the main façades, gabled dormers, one-story front porches and Greek Doric style columns.

The community, located at 9657 Bel Air Road, draws people from throughout the region. One reason for its popularity is that no large entrance fees are required, unlike other retirement communities in the area.

Brightview Perry Hall includes Independent Living, Assisted Living, and a Wellspring Village® neighborhood dedicated to dementia and Alzheimer’s Care.
