VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center
, one of the largest private specialty referral practices in Northern California,
is seeking a board certified or residency trained Cardiologist
to join our team.
VCA SVRC opened in 2007 in a newly built, custom-designed 23,000 square foot building. In 2012 the hospital grew by 4,000 square feet with the addition of a linear accelerator vault. The facility includes 15 exam rooms, 6 surgical suites with an additional ER surgical room, a 64 slice Toshiba CT with automatic injector and a 1.5 Tesla MRI. The hospital is equipped with complete endoscopic, laparoscopic and thorascopic instrumentation, multiple ultrasounds including a color flow Doppler, O2 cages, two digital radiology suites and a C-arm. In addition to the complete in-house lab which includes Abaxis CBC, PT/PTT and chemistry machines, Heska EPOC, I-stat and a colloid osmometer. An Antech lab is within a 10 minute driving distance.
VCA SVRC has a full complement of experienced, well trained and compassionate staff including 20 full time RVTs and an additional 26 unlicensed Technicians. The new internist will have access to an existing referral base committed to these services. The successful candidate will participate in community outreach in a supportive structure but this is not a situation where the service needs to be built from scratch. With over 450 hospitals that actively refer and cases continuously coming through the door, building a loyal following will not pose a problem for the right candidate.
The hospital has boarded specialists in the following disciplines: Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Radiology, Surgery, Neurology, Medical & Radiation Oncology, and Emergency/Critical Care. The relationship between the individual doctors and the various services is collegial. Sit down rounds are conducted every morning with all the doctors to discuss hospitalized case with our intern class as a learning opportunity. This type of collaborative medicine is somewhat rare outside of a university setting and makes for a rich and rewarding environment. It optimizes patient care while ensuring continuous learning. Since opening in 2007, VCA SVRC has had a strong internship program with many advancing to residencies. Teaching, mentoring and participating in the interns' professional development would be expected from any candidate.
