Seeking a full-time or part-time associate for thriving, AAHA-accredited, Cat-Friendly, and Fear Free-certified small animal hospital. Our hospital was created 10 years ago by two local veterinarians. We hold close our values: to run a family-oriented hospital that provides extraordinary patient and client care. Our staff has good quality of life and enjoy coming to work. Check out our excellent online reviews! Our immense growth has mostly been through word-of-mouth referrals. We currently have six veterinarians and are fully staffed with talented technicians and CSRs. Our beloved hospital manager has been with us for all 10 years.
What sets us apart from many other small animal hospitals is that we are privately run. There is no corporate management at North Shore Family Pet Hospital. We are a small business that operates in a way to maintain a happy work culture. We are ultimately motivated by taking extraordinary care of our patients, clients, and one another. We are open to changing protocols and ordering needed supplies as we as a group deem necessary. Our veterinarians have over 100 years combined experience; we are always sharing cases and discussing options. What truly stands out is our amazing staff-- front to back-- we have the BEST culture: a helpful, friendly crew that likes one another. Our techs do all the technical work so that the doctors can focus on client care.
The schedule is flexible. We are open Monday- Friday 8-5pm and Saturday 8-12pm. We have actually shortened our hours as we value time with our families and friends. Most doctors work 3 full days and 1 shortened day. Applicant will work half of the Saturdays and a varied schedule based on all the DVMs' personal obligations. There is no on-call nor after-hours responsibility. We work hard at work but achieve life balance.
We've recently finished an extensive remodel and our hospital is modern and updated. We are located in the affluent family-oriented northern Chicago suburb of Northbrook which is easily accessible to downtown Chicago. We use electronic records, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, in-house lab machines in addition to outside labs, therapeutic & surgical lasers, etc. We practice progressive medicine. We are located within a mile of a 24-hour specialty center. We have close relationships with several local specialty hospitals and their doctors. We, therefore, do not keep patients overnight nor take weekend call. We collaborate with an ACVIM veterinarian who regularly performs consultations, ultrasounds, endoscopy, and other procedures at our hospital.
The best candidate has 2 years' experience working in a small animal hospital as we are busy. We are open to training a newer graduate. An Illinois license should be active. Candidate should have excellent communication skills and love bonding with clients and their pets.
