VCA Great Lakes Veterinary Specialists , a 24-hour specialty practice and pillar of the Cleveland veterinary referral community for over 25 years, is located in Warrensville Heights, OH and is currently looking for an Internist to join our growing practice.

Originally founded as a single doctor practice, Great Lakes eventually grew to a small collection of specialists. It ultimately became a 24-hour ER facility and in November of 2013 moved to a custom designed 15,000 square foot facility and solidified its reputation as one of the premier specialty hospitals in Ohio.

The 2013 move into our state-of-the-art, gorgeous facility finally enabled the multiple specialists to work in a beautiful surrounding while simultaneously enabling them to offer additional services. The building has 15 exam rooms, 4 surgical suites, an 64 slice CT, MRI access next door, multiple O2 cages, incubators & ultrasounds, a lap tower and dedicated rooms for both chemotherapy and radiation iodine treatments.

A beautiful building with excellent equipment means nothing without the accompanying staff. The hospital currently has specialists in Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology and Critical Care along with amazing ER Doctors and historically has had a rotating internship program. Along with our doctors the hospital also has a very established and experienced support staff which includes multiple licensed technicians. We have a very collegial and collaborative team approach to treating all of our patients.

VCA Great Lakes is located in a beautiful suburb of Cleveland with all the perks and benefits of living close to everything. Cleveland is known for its trendy restaurants, internationally recognized arts community, for its cosmopolitan attitudes, its multiple professional sports team and is becoming increasingly well known for its growing outdoor scene. Over the last few years the city has created the MetroParks Network, an extensive system of nature preserves encompassing over 21,000 acres including over 70 miles of what is known as the Emerald Necklace Trails. It provides more hiking, mountain biking, sledding, fishing, nature trails & centers and skiing than one can do in a lifetime. The city is very affordable enabling purchases of very large homes and a very high quality of life. It also boasts two unmatched health care systems (Cleveland Clinic and Metro Health) which creates an environment filled with other professionals like yourself. Farmers markets abound, beautiful neighborhoods, like Shaker Heights, with their historical homes are very accessible and the city's familial neighborhood feel is overwhelming.

This opportunity is one that should seriously be considered. Positions at well established, busy, multi-discipline practice in a new, gorgeous building with an exceptional and plentiful staff do not become available every day. Add to that the fact that this is an actively growing practice, that it has all new equipment and the stability and strength of a network like VCA and this opportunity becomes even more unique. Throw in the fact that its located in an amazing city with tremendous outdoor activities as well as its big city appeal and you find yourself hard pressed to find an equivalent opportunity elsewhere.

As a member of the VCA family, your love for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to your professional growth. Eligible full-time employees will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package, including:

Health & Wellness
  • An innovative, new department focused on associate health and wellbeing, with programs such as company sponsored Headspace app subscriptions, Vault financial wellness tools, and access to additional mental health resources.
  • 401k retirement savings plan, with matching contributions of 25% of the first 4% of your eligible compensation
  • Health, dental, vision insurance with HSA/FSA, infertility benefits
