We've got great culture and it's not just lip service - from our team members who have each other's backs for tough days, to our emphasis on high standards of medical care for all our patients, to treating clients like friends, family, and neighbors... our culture has been built on providing excellent care not just for clients and patients but particularly for everybody on our team: DVMs, LVTs, trained nurses, front desk, & support - everybody. A healthy culture of hard work, positivity, collaboration, and forward-thinking builds outstanding medicine for our patients, and makes you wanna work here. Spend some hours with us and you'll feel it.
You're well supported.
We typically have 2 front desk, 4 nurses, 1 surgery nurse, & 2 support on the morning shift 745-5, and an entire copy of that team for the evening shift 11-CL (usually one less nurse). In the middle of the day that's 15+ people to support 3 DVMs on the floor, our usual. Our local family owns and operates Easthaven, one of us is also present for most hours of operation. We would have your back (all sides of you, actually!)
We're the right size - not too small: we're big enough to be able to afford the best equipment, training, continuing education, people, time off & other benefits, and all the other not-so-obvious operating expenses that helps make a workplace a place to look forward to (we've grown a lot in the last 2 years, by the way). Not too big: we're small enough that we know our patients and clients by name, and can work behind the scenes on patient care closely. Whether clients know it or not, we often get multiple veterinarians weighing in on patient cases.
We don't pay commission.
All our veterinarians are salary or hourly. We want you to be able to practice the best medicine without the influences of commission-based pay. Commission discourages collaboration. Collaboration = better patient care! And it's more fun for our doctors to work together...you don't have to struggle on your own with every single case! (VIN is nice but it only goes so far!)
Our clients. Our patients.
If you don't know the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti and surrounding area well yet, we've got a great mix of clients from all walks of life and backgrounds. We have a significant number of well-educated clients that are on board with us practicing medicine the way we wish to. Of course, we do wellness and puppy / kitten visits - but we see many sick or hurt patient cases that make every day interesting. We go home fulfilled.

About Easthaven Animal Hospital
Easthaven Animal Hospital is a multi-veterinarian practice in sunny Ann Arbor, Michigan. At Easthaven, despite the building having been around since 1963 we have new ultrasound and radiograph machines within the last 12-18 months, a modern surgical suite and broad in-house lab capability (and we've remodeled the place steadily over time since it passed to our McCarthy family in 2016). We are well staffed with a high DVM to team member ratio. Some of our veterinarians travel back and forth between Easthaven and our sister hospital, Dandy Acres Animal Hospital in South Lyon, MI. We are locally/family owned and operated by Dr. Therese McCarthy, a 30 year veterinarian, and family. We do our best to take great care of everyone on our teams, especially during the current trying times during COVID. We have high expectations for our medicine and a large focus on continuing education. We have an excellent reputation for our medicine and client service in our community.
