Lloyd Ternes - Business Manager

Kath and I moved to Salem in 1980, motivated by a veterinary position that was offered to her.  We wanted to be on the water, near a large city and somewhere I could play hockey.

My original assumption was that I would help Kath establish the Feline Hospital and within a year  return to the financial world.

Kath and I experienced an arduous legal battle and finally opened The Feline Hospital in 1987.  We started small and grew slowly.  Initially, Kath and I were it.  Because I grew up in a small family business culture, I felt quite comfortable.  Now, decades later, I am still intimately involved.

My goal is to shoulder as much non-medical responsibility as I can, to free the doctors and support staff to focus on delivering the highest level of medical care for patients, and customer care for clients.  Our goal is to deliver a large hospital level of care in a small personalized setting. 

I have an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Michigan and an MBA in finance from Michigan State University.

I am a sports fan in general and an avid participant in hockey and golf.  In a similar fashion, I am a business fan.  I love reading about, understanding and debating the health and strategies of companies of any size.


We recognize that The Feline Hospital website has not kept pace with our medicine.  Look for our new site over the Summer.  Thank you for your patience and patients!
