VCA Animal Hospitals Medical Director - Pittsburgh, PA in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

VCA Five Points Animal Hospital is searching for Medical Director to join our 4 doctor practice outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

For over 37 years, our hospital has a reputation of excellence in our community and our team is highly respected. We focus on outstanding medicine, compassionate care, and exceptional client education and service. We recognize the importance of life outside of work balanced with one’s professional life, so we strive to create work schedules that reflect our dedication to employees.

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!

We are looking for a compassionate veterinarian with effective communication skills who enjoys progressive medicine (varied caseload), surgery, dentistry, and the camaraderie of working with others in a private practice setting. We are a busy practice and constantly growing, so we have fun while working hard. (Sense of humor is a must!)

Our clinic has five exam rooms, a surgical suite, digital radiology, digital dental radiology, and a user-friendly EMR system. We have good relationships with the local emergency clinics and referral hospitals.

Our clinic is located approximately 30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. We are also less than two hours from Cleveland’s Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, a little over 4 hours from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and 5.5 hours from The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia for fun weekend trips. Our hospital is adjacent to Pittsburgh International Airport, as well as a large shopping community. If you like the rural life, you don’t have to look too far to find luscious farmland. Western Pennsylvania boasts beautiful outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, mountain biking, golfing, and skiing, as well as numerous options for dining, wineries, and other nightlife/social events. We also have top-rated medical facilities for you and your family.
