Mill Creek Veterinary Hospital is searching for a mixed animal veterinarian to join our team as Medical Director.
Be ready to provide quality medicine in a collaborative environment where patient-focused medicine and employee growth are priorities. As our Medical Director, you’ll lead a 2-doctor, mixed animal hospital that has a talented and tenured team, including 4 assistants and an LVT! We’re searching for an experienced doctor who will build upon our hospital’s current strengths, while elevating our services and encouraging new business ideas. Veterinarians who are confident in surgery, love teaching, and have a performance/culture driven mindset will be highly considered for this role.
Our current Medical Director, Dr. Bill Acock, has impacted the Walla Walla community for decades, providing trustworthy services to generations of families since the early '80s. As Dr. Acock begins to reduce his hours, our community would greatly benefit from a doctor who will take the time to get to know them and can become someone they trust to have their pet’s best interests in mind.
This is a full-time role with flexible weekday scheduling. We split large animal on-call services with other hospitals in the area, and our small animal patients receive afterhour emergency care at a hospital in Tri Cities that has board certified surgeons and a well-versed emergency team.
We’re dedicated to lifelong learning and are a great place to build deep working relationships with our team and advance your veterinary skills/knowledge. We provide a wide range of services and treat small and large animals—offering you a varied caseload and opportunities to expand your skills. Plus, Dr. Acock was one of the first VIN members and has 40+ years of experience to share with you! We also established a mentorship program for doctors who are interested in serving as a mentor to new graduates/early career doctors in our network. Additionally, our team has access to thought-partnership with a Medical Advisory Board, monthly DVM rounds with an internal medicine specialist, and dentistry training courtesy of a board-certified dental surgeon. If you’re a DVM who enjoys mentorship—both giving and receiving—this is a fantastic opportunity for you!
P.S. we recently welcomed Dr. Cassandra Van Atta to our team and she is eager to gain valuable mentorship from Dr. Acock and our future Medical Director. Dr. Van Atta is a recent graduate from Washington State University and she brings her enthusiasm for advanced diagnostics to our practice.
