BluePearl Specialty + Emergency Pet Hospital in Clearwater, FL is seeking a full-time board certified or residency trained criticalist to join our new state of the art emergency and specialty hospital.

We are looking to expand our current Critical Care department due to the high caseload and growth of the service. Our Critical Care service has highly qualified, dedicated technicians. We have all the newest equipment to include a 64-Slice CT, abdominal ultrasound, Storz endoscope, high- and low-flow oxygen therapy, and mechanical ventilation. Caseload is varied and exciting.

Our Clearwater hospital is located within a few miles of Clearwater, St. Pete, Treasure Island beaches and downtown St. Pete, and a short drive to downtown Tampa. The hospital has most specialties including cardiology, internal medicine, surgery, avian and exotics, oncology, ophthalmology, and our neighboring, sister Tampa hospital has radiation oncology and neurology. We are open 24/7 and currently support residency, rotating and specialty internship programs. Our ideal candidate would be a team player and have an interest in growing Critical Care in the Clearwater hospital.

The hospital facility is new as of Feb 2020. We also boast a Veterinary Relations Representative position that assists all specialties to build their service and create and maintain collaborative relationships with our referring DVM community. The Tampa market currently has 26 ER Drs. to support our specialists, a Fast Track service for non-emergent cases and Patient Care Coordinators to help facilitate client communication. We have a very collaborative, open environment. If you are looking for a fast-paced, collaborative, team-oriented hospital with an excellent technician team - BluePearl Clearwater is waiting for you!

At our hospital, you will find positive attitudes, team-oriented relationships, and a compassionate, supportive culture that provides exceptional care to pets and their families. Our talented team is open to learning new techniques and our group of doctors are both eager and full of enthusiasm in this stage of their careers. Our hospital has a very positive working environment with its high spirits, enthusiasm for the work we do, and compassion for our patients. You can feel the vibe when you walk in our doors!

We believe in fostering growth in our technicians and partnering with Penn Foster allows more opportunities. Most of our technicians are LVTs or CVTs and some have been with us for over ten years. Our technicians want the opportunity to grow as well as teach others along the way.

With a year-round tropical climate, sunny Clearwater offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, boat tours, fishing charters, zip-lining, hiking, bike trails and, of course, miles of white sandy beaches. It's not unusual to see dolphins and manatees swimming in the nearby Gulf of Mexico! Major sports teams in the area include Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
