VCA Animal Hospitals Part-Time Veterinary Care Concierge - Urgent Care in Los Angeles, California

We are looking for a Part-Time Veterinary Care Concierge to join VCA Urgent Care hospital in Los Angeles, CA.

At VCA Animal Hospitals Urgent Care-Mar Vista, the Care Concierge plays a vital role in accomplishing our vision!

Are you customer-focused and enjoy providing top-notch client service and great communication? If so, we want to hear from you! We’re taking care of the future of veterinary medicine with an innovative approach to urgent care.

The Care Concierge is the primary point of contact for a client during an Urgent Care visit, helping to set expectations and ensure goals are met before checkout. This client service-based role serves as the liaison between a client and the medical team.

The Care Concierge sets the pace of our in-hospital experience. Successful Concierges quickly establish credibility and trust with clients, can manage multiple processes of the client journey, and bring pace and enthusiasm.

The clients are appreciative that there is a way for their pets to get the urgent care they need every day. Pet owners can join the virtual waiting room via the website and wait at home until they are notified via text to head into the hospital. This minimizes the wait time at the hospital and decreases the stress for the pet. The beautiful, well-designed lobby is where “coffee house meets spa” provides unique spaces for pets and their owners. There are no ringing phones, slippery floors, loud noises, or crowded waiting rooms. Once checked in, all communication (from exam through checkout) is done in a private exam room with an individual Care Concierge to support the client and medical team.

  • Follow up with clients to check on patients and communicate any outstanding test results

  • Demonstrate excellent client and customer care

Qualifications

  • Minimum 2 years’ experience in hospitality, customer service, patient care, or related industry

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • Capable of listening to client objectives and advocating on their behalf
