The College of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University recently announced the renaming of the college’s equine hospital as the Caesars Entertainment Equine Specialty Hospital.

Willie Reed, the dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University, pointed to the great progress the now-named Caesars Entertainment Equine Specialty Hospital has made in its four years of operation.

“We’ve treated literally hundreds, if not thousands of horses in the last three to four years,” Reed told the Journal & Courier Friday. “And it’s had a big impact, I believe, in helping to sustain the equine industry here in our state.”

Ceasars Entertainment welcomed the connection.

“We are honored Caesars Entertainment’s name will be on one of the most technologically advanced equine hospital and surgical centers in the country, right here in Shelbyville,” Steve Jarmuz, senior vice president and general manager of Indiana Grand Racing and Casino, said in a press release.
