The Veterinary Medical Center at LWR is a privately owned hospital in Lakewood Ranch, FL.  We are located about 1 hour south of Tampa and very close to the cities of Sarasota and Bradenton, FL.  Our hospital contains a busy General Practice as well as a 24/7 Emergency/Specialty service.  We are in the process of a 12,000 sq foot expansion to house our Specialty Center estimated to be completed this Winter.  We are looking to add a Cardiologist to our team!  As a new service, you would play an active role in planning and purchasing the equipment you need.  Residents are encouraged to apply.  As a privately owned practice, your input is important to us, and we can add new equipment and make changes quickly when they are needed.  The Cardiology service will support our emergency department as well as patients referred from our General Practice and our local veterinarians.  Our General Practice consists of 6 full-time doctors, and our Emergency and Critical Care service consists of 10 full-time doctors, including two Criticalists.  Our Critical Care team is amazing and can be there for you for advanced monitoring of critical cases.  

Our new Specialty Center will house new equipment and additions, including 13 additional exam rooms, surgery suites, CT, hyperbaric and more.  We are actively recruiting specialists with a goal to have a complete specialty team in the near future.   In late 2021, we opened the VMC Animal Blood bank which is a fully functioning in-house blood bank run by our Critical Care team.  


*  A part-time or full-time schedule is available ranging from 3 to 5 days per week.  


We are offering a base salary + production (26%).  We anticipate this service will grow very quickly.

*  Retirement plan with 3% matching.

*  Moving allowance, if needed.

*  Sign on bonus with 1 year contract.  Our contracts do not contain non-compete clauses.

*  Working with a great group of forward thinking people!  

We understand scheduling and salary are an important part of accepting a position, and are happy to discuss this information in advance of a formal interview.  

We are privately owned and sincerely care about our doctors and staff.   You will have the support staff you need to navigate your cases and practice high quality medicine.  We are known for our approach to customer/patient care and have been a part of the Bradenton/Sarasota community for 20 years.  Our hospital is owned by a veterinarian that has practiced emergency medicine for 18 years.  If you have any questions at all about this position, please feel free to call/text Dr. Wendy Ellis at 941-266-0335 (cell) or email at
