We currently have two boarded criticalists who provide hemodialysis, plasmapheresis, and mechanical ventilator therapies. Along with our criticalists, we have 11 experienced emergency veterinarians backed by a great support staff and management team. By having owners who work in our hospital, It gives our leadership team a great perspective on how to support our staff and to make sure a good work life balance is provided. Our hospital owners and leadership team want our doctors to practice how they want and make sure they have any and all the support, equipment, and staff they need to run their department. With our new two-story hospital addition, we are actively hiring for surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and oncology specialists to better serve our community.
