Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) is one of the nation’s oldest local and independently owned specialty and emergency hospitals. We don’t brag about much, but with over 40 years in business, we have matured to the point where we realize that veterinary medicine is about more than fixing dogs and cats or fancy equipment. We understand that veterinary medicine can have meaning beyond the nuts and bolts of a typical specialty and emergency hospital.

Our owners and staff share the belief that the enormous impact of the high-tech and state-of-the-art services we provide compels us to expand our mission. We not only want VSC to be a good company but an organization that does good; for our patients, clients, referring veterinarians, staff, community and the environment. We take this social and environmental responsibility very seriously; it shapes our unique culture and guides our growth and business decisions.

  • It’s the reason we were named a Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplace for 2016
  • It’s the reason we are engaged in B-Corporation Certification
  • It’s the reason why we are the first hospital in the Chicagoland area and one of just eight internationally to achieve VetCot Level 1 Trauma Center Certification

Because we are one of the now-rare non-corporately owned practices, we also have the freedom and flexibility to grow and adapt not only as an organization but also in order to accommodate the unique individual needs of each employee. This allows many opportunities for empowered, timely decisions in the best interests of the patients and our diverse and growing staff. To put it simply, it doesn’t take a month to fix a frustrating problem.

And, it’s these unique quality that differentiates us from any other specialty hospital in the world.

We are looking for like-minded people who want to practice “veterinary medicine that matters” in a supportive, collaborative and loving environment. We want doctors who will bring their passion, their skills, and their ‘make the world a better place’ attitude to the north shore of Chicago.

We have a position available for an internist in our thriving practice. So, whether you are just finishing a residency or are a seasoned veteran looking for a fresh start if you share this vision, send us your resume.
