Open Positions

Progressive Care Ward Veterinary Technician I or II

(3 Open Positions)

The Progressive Care Ward (PCW) is a subset of the Emergency and Critical Care Service, which is VECCS Level I certified and AAHA accredited. Operating daily as a 24-hour ward, the PCW provides supportive patient care for all departments of the small animal services, including orthopedic, neurology, soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and oncology. We are comprised of a dedicated staff, including 35 full and part-time ECC technicians. These technicians work in concert with our team of ECC-boarded clinicians, residents, interns, and a bi-monthly rotation of veterinary students. Highlights of this service include a state-of-the-art isolation area and access to the most advanced care available.

Technicians in this service provide continued treatments and care to patients post emergency, pre or post operatively, or to any other patient that needs further dedicated care in ensuring their recovery. This position offers an excellent opportunity to utilize the skills and knowledge you have acquired from your previous experiences, as well as the chance to learn advanced technical skills and broaden your emergency and critical care knowledge. By working side-by-side with the Intensive Care Unit, PCW staff have the added opportunity to explore that service in greater depth, benefiting those considering specialization.

Client Services Manager

(1 Open Position)

The 100,000 square foot AAHA accredited Small Animal Hospital has a variety of specialty services to offer to the over 28,000 patients seen yearly, thus making the duties of a Client Services Representative vast and diverse. Specialty services assisted by Client Service Representatives include Cardiology, Dermatology, Emergency & Critical Care, Integrative Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic and Soft Tissue Surgery, Primary Care & Dentistry, and Zoological Medicine.

Front Desk CSR’s are considered the initial impression of the Small Animal Hospital and their duties include welcoming guests, checking-in clients and their pets, addressing concerns, and offering information about the hospital to clients.  Floor CSR’s are assigned to a particular service and are intermediaries between clients, referring veterinarians, and the internal staff including technicians, interns, residents, faculty clinicians, and veterinary students, from all services.  They are responsible for ensuring the appointment goes smoothly, addressing concerns, coordinating activities for the patient, reviewing invoices, and discharging patients. Both versions of the CSR is available for all services except for Emergency & Critical Care and Primary Care & Dentistry – these services have a unique CSR whose duties and responsibilities are a combination of both.

We are seeking a manager to oversee the various duties of all the Client Service Representatives and who are interested in creating a culture focused on high quality client care across all interactions regarding client services.
