Well, we don’t need to sell you on the location: Charleston, SC is ranked the best city in the US and Canada by Travel and Leisure, and the second-best city in the world! James Island Veterinary Hospital (JIVH) is located 10 minutes from Folly Beach and minutes from walking on King St. downtown
JIVH is a progressive and rapidly growing, small animal AAHA accredited practice with plans for continued expansion in the years to come. I purchased JIVH in April 2017 and haven’t let up in my quest to make us the premiere veterinary facility in Charleston. We are well on our way to this goal with exceptional customer service, client communication, and standard of care medicine at the forefront of our mission.
We have an incredible staff; composed of 4 veterinarians, 1 practice manager (boarded CVPM), 10 technicians (2 LVTs, 1 pending LVT exam) and 5 receptionists. Our support staff is top notch and are a tremendous asset to our hospital. Please see our website to learn more about our fantastic group of dedicated employees.
Since purchasing the clinic in April 2017 we have been striving to constantly improve our standard of care and off the best medicine to our patients and clients. We have a surgical suite, treatment area, dental suite with digital radiology, isolation room and separate full in-house Idexx lab, and radiology suite. We have grown from a two-doctor practice to 3 full-time and 1 part-time veterinarians who practice some of the best medicine in the area. All doctors meet monthly to discuss protocols, changes in current/best medicine/standard of care and to ensure the best communication as a team. We all back each other up and support each other in every aspect. We host a local specialist on a quarterly basis to further promote growth as a team and to push the boundaries of our medicine and surgical standards.
We are looking to add 1 full-time veterinarian to our practice who is comfortable working independently and as a part of our team, has good surgical skills and whose focus remains on communication, patient AND client care, and quality medicine. We currently see dogs and cats but would welcome anyone that can promote our continued growth with these patients and/or have an interest in exotics as well.
We push the limits to have a great work/life balance and have transitioned to a very successful schedule of three 12 hour shifts per week, giving all associates and staff 4 days off per week. In addition, we provide an exceptional benefits package: CE, organization dues/licensure/insurance, paid time off, matching 401k and pay 75% of health insurance.
The new position will cover our evening hours from Noon to midnight 3 days a week rotating monthly between either Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays OR Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
