Dear MWAH clients,

My name is Billy Hess and along with Marianne Janosco DVM and Dana Hunley DVM, we would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves as the new owners of Markham Woods Animal Hospital as of September 1, 2022.

We would like to take this opportunity, first and foremost, to celebrate the amazing work the Penteks have done over the years. We sincerely thank the Penteks for the trust they have shown in us to continue their legacy. In this market, they had a variety of options when it came time to retire. Like us, they believe that veterinary medicine is best when owners are part of the local community. Like the Penteks, we are passionate about keeping Markham Woods Animal Hospital a privately owned hospital for the indefinite future.

The great news is Dr. Pentek will remain part of the MWAH team for at least the next two years to help guide the transition. This was very important to Dr. Pentek to ensure her clients and patients got the best and smoothest transition possible.  That is also our goal as the new owners. We plan to continue the things that have made MWAH your choice for veterinary care. Hopefully, we can add some things we have learned over our combined 40 years of veterinary practice and management experience as we learn the MWAH way.

We look forward to meeting you all soon.


William J Hess

Co-Owner and Hospital Manager
