We are adding to our general practice team at VCA Salem Animal Hospital in Salem, OR. Our hospital is an AAHA-accredited 24-hour general practice and urgent care/emergency facility with a great client base and support team. The hospital is managed by a 7-member team including medical director, hospital manager, assistant hospital manager, and lead managers of each staff department.
We are driven by the client experience, and strive to give them as much as we can in each visit. Our appointments range from 30 - 60 minutes. All walk-ins and unscheduled appointments are seen by the urgent care service so the general practice team can focus on the experience with scheduled rooms. We store all supplies for most visits (including vaccines) in each room, and also invoice clients out in the room, all in order to streamline the visit and maximize doctor time with each patient. Each doctor gets their own assigned room assistant each day to help facilitate room flow, with numerous other staff providing ancillary support for sample collection, radiology, etc. Surgery days are supported by 2 CVTs and a non-licensed assistant. Our surgical caseload involves a strong focus on dentistry, so interest and proficiency in both dental and soft tissue surgery are required. Our hospital has a full in-house diagnostic lab, digital radiology, ultrasound, CO2 laser, cautery, and sevoflurane anesthesia. We have easy access to specialists at Oregon State University and Portland.
Our general practice doctors have a work week of four 10 hour days, with one dedicated surgery day each week. Every attempt is made to have at least two consecutive days off each week. We release the schedule in three month increments to allow for stability in the shorter term and flexibility in the longer term. We see general practice rooms seven days a week, with extended hours Monday - Friday, which allows for flexibility with scheduling.
Travel costs for interviewing are covered. Signing or relocation bonuses are also possible.
2 openings. Employer will assist with relocation costs.
