Angell West is seeking a full time or part time Staff Emergency Veterinarian – for our busy Emergency/ICU service at Angell West located in Waltham, MA.
Angell West is one of just a few American Animal Hospital Accredited (AAHA) veterinary referral hospitals in Massachusetts. We are a satellite hospital of Angell Animal Medical Center, an emergency, referral and primary care hospital that has been operating in Boston for more than a century. Waltham, a small city 11 miles from downtown Boston, is ideally situated within easy reach of Metrowest communities and those north and south of Boston, with high quality primary care veterinary hospitals serving as our referral base.
Our facility and resources:
Our hospital is approximately 18,000 square feet and has been recently renovated. The hospital is well equipped with 3 surgical suites, ultrasound, echocardiography, endoscopy, laparoscopy, digital radiography, and telemetry. Our ICU is equipped with cages for continuous oxygen supply, and we maintain an on-site blood bank. Labwork and samples are sent twice daily to the fully equipped Angell-Boston laboratory staffed by boarded pathologists. Angell West is also equipped with an in-house laboratory, including a NOVA, Procyte CBC, Abaxis chemistry machine, and Abaxis coagulation machine. Full abdominal ultrasounds are available 6 days a week, and radiographs are reviewed 6 days a week by the boarded radiologist on site at Angell West or at Angell Boston. We added an on-site physical rehabilitation practice in 2018, including a pool, two underwater treadmills, land based exercise facilities, and various ancillary services. In 2019, we will be expanding our imaging capabilities and installing a CT scanner.
Our collegial hospital staff includes emergency/critical care, internal medicine, surgery, avian/exotics, cardiology, neurology, dermatology, radiology, physical rehabilitation, and behavior departments. Our large group of emergency veterinarians are all internship trained, team oriented, diligent, and conscientious. Collaboration is one of our core values, and our surveyed team members consistently rate the people with whom they work as one of the best parts of their job. Numerous professional development offerings include weekly seminars, frequent lunch and learns, several hours of journal club, topic based rounds, and didactic learning (primarily at our Boston practice).
Angell West is operated by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA), a non-profit, values-based organization with a focus on client service, patient care, and life-work balance. We hold ourselves to an extremely high standard of excellence, another of our core values, as evidenced by AAHA referral accreditation for our specialty services, which differentiates us from many of the other referral hospitals in the area. Continual improvement is part of our culture.
