Full-time, Part-time

Partner Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center (PVESC) is a women-founded, led, and owned business committed to reimaging a profession from the inside out by reworking outdated systems and solving the problems our profession is facing.

Our leadership team has a reputation for building and retaining happy, healthy teams- and founded Partner Veterinary to give more professionals a supportive environment to do the job they love.

We consider ER to be its own specialty department, tasked with triaging, stabilizing, and treating emergent patients. The ER is the heart of the Partner hospitals, and we are committed to reinforcing collaborative and effective communication among all departments, with a combination of open dialogue and tangible agreements and protocols.

Emergency medicine is critically ill. We have the cure.
