Twenty years ago I took a leap of faith to become a hospital owner, with one of my major goals being to create a work environment that people enjoyed being part of. I believe I have succeeded in that goal, most of my employees have been with me since I took over the practice and my associate, whose shoes I am looking to fill, was employed for nine years before leaving to move out of state.
My hospital is located in the wonderful community of Mount Prospect, Illinois, a stable middle class neighborhood with an excellent school system. Mount Prospect is a 40 minute train ride from downtown Chicago, with convenient stations located just a few blocks from the hospital. We have a fantastic client base who say yes more than no to health care recommendations.
Mount Plaines Animal Hospital has been a part of this community for over 50 years. We have been AAHA accredited since before I took over the practice. We have all the usual bells and whistles for equipment including digital rads, ultrasound, in house cbc and chemistry analyzer, as well as twice daily lab pick up. In addition, we have several local emergency clinics for after hours emergencies and patient monitoring, as well as several specialty centers with whom we have excellent working relationships.
I am not looking for a slave to the clinic. I will work with you to develop am acceptable schedule, whether you prefer longer days, and more time off in between, or later starts to accommodate child care needs. I do not expect you to stay late for emergencies, and we do go by appointments only.
I may not be able to compete against the signing bonuses and loan repayment options offered by large corporations but I can promise you that you will work in an environment where you are valued, and supported. You will be able to develop long term relationships with clients who are grateful for the expertise you provide, and you will become part of a wonderful community. Along with that comes a competitive salary, benefits and workable schedule.
Please contact me with any questions you might have.
Come as you are. If you are new to the profession, I will not abandon you, but will provide a supportive environment where you can develop your skill set to become an excellent practicing veterinarian. If you have experience, we will do our utmost to accommodate your preferences. I have been in the game for a long time, and have a lot of wisdom to share, but am not set in my ways, and I value reassessment and improvement.
