Indiana budget includes $73M for new Purdue animal hospital

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana's new two-year state budget includes $73 million to jump-start Purdue University's plans to build a new animal hospital.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels had urged state lawmakers to approve funding for the new hospital, saying it's vital to Purdue's veterinary college and the state.

The Journal & Courier reports that the state funding will cover about two-thirds of the new Purdue Veterinary Teaching Hospital's $108 million cost.

Purdue will provide the remaining $35 million for the project, which has been in the works for the past decade.

The university says its animal treatment center is the oldest at any of the nation's 30 university veterinary programs.

Groundbreaking on the West Lafayette campus' new animal hospital could come in spring 2020. Construction is expected to take about two years.
