1957 - Opened!

Initially opened in 1957, Hickman Mills Animal Hospital has continuously provided the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area with high quality and compassionate veterinary care for 60+ year. Built by Dr. L.W. Williams on what was then a two-lane road called Blue Ridge, we have experienced only two ownership changes in more than 5 decades of service.
