Meet Our Staff

Bill Kayne, Practice Manager

After spending three years as a nurse in the US Army, Bill attended Southern Illinois University, graduating in 1978. As his wife, Sandy, was accepted to veterinary school at U. of I., Bill began work as a nurse in a long-term care facility in Champaign, Illinois.  At the time of Sandy’s graduation, Bill left this facility as a licensed Nursing Home Administrator.  He then spent the next 9 years in the administrating nursing home facilities in the cities of Rock Falls, Murphysboro and Carbondale, Illinois.  Upon the couple's purchase of Striegel Animal Hospital in 1991, Bill has used his administrator's background to be Practice Manager for Striegel’s for the next 23 years. After the sale of the hospital, Bill accepted position of practice manager with Animal Medical Center of Mid-America, associated with the Humane Society of St. Louis. The position was not what Bill was looking for and upon his return he joined Central Hospital for Animals as Practice Manager for all four locations.

Bill has happily been associated with these practices since 2015. Bill's interests include snow skiing, golfing, reading, writing, and keeping tabs on their three adult kids. His picture above is from a happy time with one of his favorite family’s pets, Freya, who passed away a few years ago.
