Northtown Guardian Pet Hospital is seeking a Veterinarian who is ready to step into the next level of veterinary practice leadership as an equity partner.
Our full-service hospital located in Santa Rosa, CA is the result of the recent merger of two practices: Northtown Animal Hospital and Guardian Pet Hospital. Northtown’s hospital burned in the wildfires of October 2017, and the merger with Guardian has provided us with our current temporary home and the exciting opportunity to take the best of both practices and launch this brand new one. We recently expanded our current facility to provide new treatment and surgery space. We are also in the process of designing and building a brand-new state of the art hospital which will be located at the former Northtown site. You can see what our new hospital will look like HERE
As a member of the veterinary care team you will join Dr. Racelle LaMar, our practice partner and Medical Director, along with Dr. Joy Mueller, Guardian Pet Hospital’s founder and former owner. Together with them you will work alongside an enthusiastic and dedicated support team in a fun, passionate and busy practice environment.
This role offers you the opportunity of equity ownership in the merged practice, joining forces with Dr. LaMar in an expanded leadership team to move the practice forward as we develop and eventually move to our brand-new facility. As one of the two on-site owners, you will be involved in on-going care and long-term decision making regarding medical standards and services. In addition, you will be central to forming the future strategy and direction of the hospital.
Compensation and benefits include:
Opportunity for equity ownership with assistance if needed for your eventual buy-in
