With more than 2,600 veterinarians in 42 states (and Washington, DC and Puerto Rico!), Banfield Pet Hospital oversees around 8 million pet visits a year. The company’s goal of providing high-quality healthcare for each and every pet is guided by five principles—quality, responsibility, mutuality, efficiency, and freedom.
But Banfield isn’t just any pet hospital—the team is highly driven by innovative technology. “One of the exciting things of being at Banfield is having all the data that we have for research,” shares Elizabeth Lund, Senior Director of Research. “There are just amazing opportunities with all the evidence and the insights we generate with the research to put them in the fingertips of not only our doctors and our team, but our pet owners.”
And because Banfield is so passionate about keeping up with the most recent technology and research, the business is always evolving. “People ask me why I have been here 18 years, at the same place. And I have a standard answer for that,” says Vadim Svinenko, Senior Director of IT Enterprise Application and Architecture. “Every year at Banfield is different for me. Because Banfield is so innovative and technology changes so fast, I feel like every year I have a new set of challenges and new opportunities to grow.”
When they aren’t making pets lives better, Banfield associates are continuously looking for ways to bond with each other—whether it’s putting up themed decorations for Halloween, doing a team scavenger hunt, or exploring superb restaurants. Banfield knows that a team with deeper bonds sticks together like glue—and that close connections make for greater collaboration and achievement.
“I love the feeling of family. I’ve always known that I always had someone to lean on—there’s always someone that has my back. You’re not just a lone soldier out there. You have the support behind you of many people doing the same job and wanting the same thing,” shares Medical Director Mary Guerra.
If you want to improve healthcare for thousands of pets, Banfield Pet Hospital may be the place for you. There's just one non-negotiable: You must love dogs (and other pets, too)!
