History and Future Pursuits of Animal Care Hospital

The Legacy of Animal Care Hospital

The Animal Care Hospital was established in 1994 by Dr Cindy Krach and Dr Dennis Brown.  Their commitment to you and to the Island of Maui helped create what we are today.  It is through their dedicated work that has allowed Animal Care to become a reputable entity in Kula and throughout the Island.  We are excited that they are now able to retire and dedicate their future time to cultivating new memories to last a lifetime.  We  share in their excitement and decision to pass their legacy on to New Owner Dr Dennis M Barros.  All three doctors have a special affinity for one another and we are proud to welcome Dr Dennis Barros to our Team and as our future leader of the Hospital.  Dr Barros brings 26 years of experience as a doctor and previous owner of several highly rated hospitals on the mainland.  His vast experience in the field of medicine and surgery has assisted numerous hospitals to become some of the top hospitals in the bay area of Califonia.  In the short amount of time since Dr Barros has lead the team, we  have reached new levels of expertise and abilities to provide you only the best for your family.  Thank you for your future support in our growth and development.
