All-Care Animal Referral Center , one of VCA’s flagship specialty practices and one of the country’s most recognized and respected referral practices, is currently looking for a residency trained or boarded surgeon to join and complement our dynamic team.

There are very few hospitals in the country with the caseload, equipment and reputation as All-Care. Virtually every specialty is represented, multiple residency programs, a referral pool of over 800 hospitals and a reputation for practicing state-of-the-art medicine and surgery.

The hospital was founded in 1986 and is currently housed in an 15,000 sq foot facility with plans underway to build and move  into a new 30,000 sq foot facility in early 2016. We have an annual caseload of 25,000 and a geographic span that covers most of Southern California. This is as established and busy a practice as you’re going to find.

All-Care Animal Referral Center , one of VCA’s flagship specialty practices and one of the country’s most recognized and respected referral practices, is currently looking for a residency trained or boarded surgeon to join and complement our dynamic team.

There are very few hospitals in the country with the caseload, equipment and reputation as All-Care. Virtually every specialty is represented, multiple residency programs, a referral pool of over 800 hospitals and a reputation for practicing state-of-the-art medicine and surgery.

The hospital was founded in 1986 and is currently housed in an 15,000 sq foot facility with plans underway to build and move  into a new 30,000 sq foot facility in early 2016. We have an annual caseload of 25,000 and a geographic span that covers most of Southern California. This is as established and busy a practice as you’re going to find.

You would be joining a team that already includes some of the biggest names in our profession: Dr. Bob Murtaugh , is the Medical Director. He is a founder of the ACVECC Specialty College and established the Emergency and Critical Care department at Tufts University. Dr. Stephen Ettinger , probably the most recognizable and respected name in Cardiology and Internal Medicine and Drs. Frank Borostyankoi and Justin Greco , established and extremely well respected surgeons.

Joining these leaders in the profession is an equally impressive list of 20 full and part-time specialists, six residents, 20 licensed technicians and an additional support staff of one hundred. We will be adding radiation oncology in the new facility and will be training a resident through Colorado State University to fill that role.

Naturally, with all these specialties, you would expect us to have all the latest diagnostic, therapeutic and monitoring “toys”. In this, as in most other departments, we do not disappoint. There is the expected standard surgical equipment, substantial minimally invasive surgery capabilities, digital radiography and seven day a week MRI and CT. Additionally, we are very proud of our physical therapy and rehabilitation center which includes a counter current pool and an underwater treadmill. The center is staffed by a full time physical therapist with a DPT in physical rehabilitation thus allowing you to be as active or as hands off as you wish with necessary patient rehab.

We are also proud of our strong residency program. As such, we would expect any specialist coming on board to be a mentor in the residents’ education. This type of collaborative medicine is no longer limited to university settings and we love being able to offer such a cutting edge environment for professional growth.

Our next surgeon will possess excellent technical skills with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries including arthroscopy and laparoscopy. We would expect you to be a happy, personable person who would fit nicely into our hospital family. Hopefully you have a “fire in your belly” and an interest in both cutting often and in complicated and challenging cases. We want you to be empathetic, to care about your patients and their owners’ equally and to treat others as you would want to be treated yourself. We want a fun person, one who enjoys coming to work, who likes to interact with the staff and who contributes to both the congenial and professional atmosphere of our hospital.

VCA All-Care is located in Fountain Valley, CA, next to Huntington Beach and the gorgeous Pacific Coast Highway, ten minutes from the beach. This is quintessential Southern California living with permanent blue skies, palm trees and postcard perfect days and nights. This is the stuff of legends. Orange County also boasts some of the best schools in the state, some of the safest places to raise a family and an almost unparalleled quality of life. Big Bear Mountain is a two hour drive away thus ensuring a morning beach run followed by a ski run in the afternoon as an absolute possibility. Los Angeles, with all its cosmopolitan perks and charm is only one hour away.

Openings at VCA All-Care don’t happen often so this is a rare opportunity to work in this hospital with its stellar reputation for excellence and in one of the most desirable locations in the nation. An opportunity to walk into a successful multi-doctor surgical service and become very busy and financially successful in short order. If you feel you’re the one we’ve been searching for (or we’re the one you’ve been looking for), please don’t miss this opportunity and apply immediately.
