Job Description:

VCA Boulevard Animal Hospital, located in Newport News, Virginia, is looking for a Medical Director who enjoys practicing advanced medicine with a cohesive, tenured team.

VCA Boulevard Animal Hospital is a well-maintained, large facility that includes: digital radiography, digital dental radiography, ultrasound machine, large surgical suite, separate dog and cat waiting rooms and exam rooms, large boarding facility, and grooming suite. VCA Boulevard has a fully equipped lab capable of running in-house lab work in addition to having a fully stocked pharmacy. In addition, VCA Boulevard works closely with a Veterinary Internal Medicine Specialist and a Veterinary Cardiologist to schedule abdominal ultrasounds and echocardiograms on-site. We are also pleased to share a good relationship with two veterinary emergency hospitals within a six-mile radius of our hospital.

VCA Boulevard has proudly served in our community for over 30 years, earning a reputation for excellent patient care and customer service. In addition, we have enjoyed providing medical care for the Newport News Police Department K9 Unit for more than 15 years and have developed a fantastic partnership with the Peninsula SPCA.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a motivated veterinarian to continue practicing medicine while establishing the direction and medical quality of the hospital like a practice owner. Plus, you'll have the solid backing of experts in Operations, Marketing, Human Resources, Payroll, and more, to help you succeed.

The City of Newport News sits on a prime vantage point where the James River meets the Chesapeake Bay, in the heart of one of the most historic and beautiful areas of the United States. Steeped in history, ours is a community of various trades, including shipbuilding, international commerce, research, and technology. In addition, our economy is strengthened by the strong military presence in Hampton Roads. From our central Coastal Virginia location, you can experience water activities, history, and the great outdoors. Enjoy one of our many scenic parks filled with every activity imaginable, from hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing, golf, and more fun-filled attractions that let you get up close and personal with nature and Virginia's wildlife. Numerous historical sites and recreational activities within the greater Hampton Roads area are only a short drive away, including Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens, and the Yorktown Battlefields. Drive a little farther, and North Carolina's Outer Banks, the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah mountains, and Washington, D.C., are popular weekend getaways.
