Veterinary Specialty Center is one of the nation’s oldest local and independently owned specialty and emergency hospitals. We don’t brag about much, but with >40 years in business, we have matured to the point where we realize that Veterinary Medicine is about more than fixing dogs and cats or fancy equipment. We understand the Veterinary Medicine can having meaning beyond the nuts and bolts of a typical specialty and emergency hospital.
Our owners and staff share the belief that the enormous impact of the high-tech and state-of-the-art services we provide compels us to expand our mission. We not only want VSC to be a good company but an organization that does good; for our patients, clients, referring veterinarians, staff, community and the environment. We take this social and environmental responsibility very seriously; it shapes our unique culture and guides our growth and business decisions.
It’s the reason we were named a Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplace for 2016
It’s the reason we are engaged in B-Corporation Certification
It’s the reason why we are the only hospital in Illinois to achieve VECCS Level I Trauma Certification
And it’s the unique quality that differentiates us from any other specialty hospital in the world.
We are looking for like-minded people who want to practice “Veterinary Medicine that matters” in a supportive, collaborative and loving environment. We want doctors who will bring their passion, their skills, and their ‘make the world a better place’ attitude to the north shore of Chicago.
So, whether you are just finishing a residency or are a seasoned veteran looking for a fresh start if you share this vision, give us a call and join us for a day to see if we are the right fit for your career.
