VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital is seeking a Specialty Medical Director to join our fast paced, AAHA accredited, 24-hour emergency, specialty, and general practice located just outside of Chicago.
Located in the affluent area of Downers Grove, our hospital currently offers specialty medicine in the areas of internal medicine, surgery, critical care, neurology and dermatology. We recently completed a remodel, which includes an interventional radiology suite in addition to all the equipment one would expect in a specialty hospital including a 64-slice CT, MRI, fluoroscopy, lithotripsy, and nuclear scintigraphy.
Only 20 miles west of Chicago, Downers Grove is at the crossroads of the western suburbs, is close to O'Hare International Airport, and has three stops on the Metra commuter rail. Designated a Tree City USA, attractions include two forest preserves and several parks that give residents places to enjoy the outdoors. Downers Grove offers a high quality of life with excellent schools, beautiful parks, and a variety of restaurants and retail shops. With all the added attractions of Chicago, our city is a great place to call home.
This is an outstanding opportunity to continue practicing medicine while establishing the direction and medical quality of the hospital like an owner would, but without the risks of ownership. Plus, you'll have the solid backing of experts in Operations, Marketing, Human Resources, Payroll, and more, to help you succeed.
The Medical Director (MD) under direction and collaboration of the field management team, is responsible for establishing the medical quality and patient care practiced by all doctors in a given hospital. The MD achieves this through strong leadership and serving as a mentor and role model for the associate veterinarians and staff. An MD should demonstrate a strong work ethic, integrity, and a consistent positive attitude. The MD is also an integral part of the hospital management team responsible for the overall financial performance of the hospital, and helps create and drive the overall direction for the hospital that will achieve positive results. The MD also fulfills all of the duties of a staff veterinarian in addition to the specific responsibilities of Medical Director.
