Are you looking for a little more challenge and a little less monotony but not ready to jump to ER yet (or ever)? Are you tired of working for a faceless corporation who doesn't appreciate how amazing and essential you are? Are you tired of working for a hospital that doesn't provide free snacks (we do!)?
Are you looking for a perfect middle ground between general practice and ER? How about Urgent Care??
Rockingham Emergency Veterinary Hospital (REVH) is expanding our appointment-based Urgent Care service! REVH is a privately-owned 24/7 emergency and Urgent Care hospital. We currently offer scheduled Urgent Care appointments 3 days a week, and plan to expand that to 6 days.
All full-time doctors work a 3-day work week, and schedules are regular (not rotating) with shifts grouped together and long blocks of time off (The position we are seeking to fill would be Thursday- Saturday, 12 hour shifts).
Our Urgent Care is appointment-based, and the urgent care doctor would have almost complete control over the appointment schedule, with no work-ins or double bookings unless you want them. Appointments are 30-60 minutes depending on the case, booked no more than 24 hours in advance, and we do not offer any wellness or preventive care.
Urgent Care is located within a 24/7 ER (with a dedicated UC treatment room and dedicated UC technicians), so any patients that require hospitalization or more extensive workup can be transferred to the ER department, and not to another hospital as would happen at a stand alone Urgent Care.
REVH is an employee-focused hospital. We are proud to offer a non-toxic, inclusive, and fun atmosphere. We have a zero tolerance policy for abusive clients, encourage employees to stand up for themselves and their coworkers, and always have our staffs' backs. Turnover is low, with some employees having been with us since we opened 14 years ago.
We are fully staffed with experienced ER and Urgent Care technicians! Technicians are well-paid, highly skilled, and properly leveraged so that doctors are free to do doctor stuff. All staff members are appreciated, respected, and treated as such- we value all employees’ input and offer a collaborative and mentoring environment.
We recently completed a building addition, a parking lot expansion, and added an additional exam room, an employee pet kennel and a dedicated ICU. Our hospital includes a full in-house laboratory, DR Xray, ultrasound, telemetry, isolation ward, and a surgical suite fully equipped for all soft tissue surgery, including electrocautery, Voyant Vessel sealer, and state-of-the-art patient monitoring equipment. We have a Snyder ICU cage, and an OGSI oxygen generating system. We do not have specialists on staff but we have IM ultrasound and endoscopy available usually within 24 hours.
REVH is in beautiful tax-free southern New Hampshire, minutes from Boston, mountains, or the seacoast. We are a privately-owned, well-established but still rapidly growing 24/7 emergency and urgent care hospital. Windham is an affluent but small town, and we have many repeat clients who are motivated and have the means to provide the best care for their pets. We have a great relationship with all local pDVMs, and we communicate closely with them regarding their patients. REVH is well known and respected in our small community, and in surrounding towns.
The ideal candidate has at least 1 year of experience (or is internship trained), is a good client communicator, and is efficient with time (since appointments are scheduled). This would be an ideal position for a veterinarian wanting a little more challenge than general practice, with the structure of GP but less chaotic pace than ER. Experience or an interest in exotics would be a huge plus, as we are one of very few ERs in the area who treat exotics. Above all, the ideal candidate gets along well with others, and doesn’t take themselves too seriously!
