VCA West 86th Street Animal Hospital is looking for an Medical Director to lead our doctor team in Indianapolis, IN!

We have been serving the our local community for many years. We have a very loyal client base and it continues to grow. We pride ourselves on being efficient and have a collaborative approach to medicine. Our staff is like family and one of our greatest attributes is the longevity of the staff. We work as a team to deliver the best medical care for our patients, as well as the best experience for our clients.

Our hospital is located on the Northeast side of Indianapolis. Our hospital is 7 miles from downtown Indianapolis, about a 20 minute drive to Lucas Oil Stadium, Home of the Indianapolis Colt; Victory Field, Home of the Indianapolis Indians and Bankers Life Stadium, Home of the Indiana Pacers. Our hospital is also conveniently located 20 minutes from the racing Capital of the World, Speedway Indiana, Home of the Indianapolis 500. We are also a 25 minute drive to the airport, (the best airport in North America, 5 years running). Our hospital location offers the best of both worlds. We are close enough to all the action that Indianapolis has to offer, yet has the home town feel of a smaller town.

Our hospital is well-equipped with a dedicated dental suite and dental radiology. We believe in a team approach to medicine and focus on high quality patient care. We believe in supporting the local community and have a great relationship with the Indy Humane Shelter.

Indianapolis has large number of attractions for your enjoyment including: Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Walk Along or Paddle Down the Central Canal, Monument Circle, White River State Park, Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art, Indianapolis Zoo, Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, Indiana State Museum, and Eagle Creek Park and Nature Preserve. We also have great school systems in the area including: Speedway School District, Herron High School, Zionsville Community Schools, Westfield Schools, and Brownsburg Schools. Indianapolis is the capitol of Indiana, and the largest city in Indiana. Indianapolis is also an easy drive to other major cities including Cincinnati, Ohio; Louisville, KY; and Chicago, IL.
