Are you a hands-on leader looking for an exciting opportunity to build and shape the future of a rapidly growing specialty and emergency hospital? The Emergency Veterinary Hospital of Eugene and Springfield in Oregon is seeking a highly experienced and motivated Chief of Specialty to join our team.  You will be working alongside our long-time Medical Director and Partner, Dr. Max Rinaldi, a highly skilled and experienced emergency veterinarian with a passion for exotic animal medicine.

As our Chief of Specialty, you will work with our highly skilled clinicians, leading by example on the floor and driving forward our specialty services. You will be responsible for developing and implementing protocols, supervising specialty veterinarians, and mentoring your team. You will help to lay the foundation for the next several decades of our hospital's upward trajectory.

With a brand new 12,000 square foot facility and 4,000 square feet of dedicated space for specialty services, you will have the unique opportunity to help build the hospital of your dreams and shape its future alongside our local leadership team and the rest of the Lakefield family.

We are seeking candidates with strong interpersonal skills and a collaborative mindset, who value both their team and their patients. You will work in a positive work environment that supports professional development and quality of life, with a competitive base salary, bonus potential, medical and dental insurance, license reimbursement, continuing education allowance, 401k with company match, generous paid time off, and AVMA PLIT professional liability insurance.

Our hospital is equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic and surgical facilities, including a brand new 128 slice Toshiba CT system, and is an AAHA accredited practice committed to maintaining the highest standards in the industry. We offer a robust mentoring program for associates and a sign-on bonus for full-time veterinarians.

Wine enthusiasts flock to the nearby Willamette Valley, which is home to numerous vineyards. With the Cascade and Coastal Mountain ranges flanking the area, there are ample opportunities for hiking, cycling, and boating. Our hospital is just a short drive from the coast and only an hour and a half south of Portland, a bustling metropolitan area.
