Looking for small town charm with uptown amenities? Our practice is nestled in the picturesque Allegany Mountains of Bedford Pennsylvania, an area with a rich history, yet full of contemporary amenities. Privately owned shops and boutiques as well as multiple upscale restaurants and bistros fill downtown while nearby Omni Bedford Springs Resort and Spa brings a touch of luxury to the area. The surrounding area offers several state parks as well as hiking and biking trails. Whether you are an experienced vet looking for a great area to put down roots or are a new graduate looking to work with vets who have experience in mentorship; we offer a great opportunity!
Our practice is a privately owned five doctor small animal practice. New associates are integrated into the practice at their pace and comfort level. Working with four other veterinarians means always having access to support when needed as well as ample experience to train you in the art of medicine and hone your decision-making skills. We also encourage the pursuit of special interests (i.e. orthopedic surgery, ultrasound, etc.). We are looking for someone who values individualized patient care from a team approach and who is open to learning from the experience of others. Additionally, as a privately owned practice, future partnership opportunity is available to those seeking the benefits of ownership. We offer very competitive benefits including exceptional retirement plan, paid vacation, fully paid health insurance, paid AVMA dues and PLIT, clothing allowance, CE stipend, a four-day work week, and a great work-life balance.
About Veterinary Medical Center
The Veterinary Medical Center, located in historic Bedford PA, has been serving our community for nearly fifty years. The practice has evolved from a two-doctor mixed animal practice to a busy five doctor small animal practice and continues to grow. Occasional pocket pets and small ruminants are also seen in the office pending doctor’s comfort level with these species. We currently work a four-day work week with rotating weekends. Having five doctors allows us flexibility in scheduling while still always having veterinarians available to serve our community. Serving the animals and people of our community is truly our philosophy and we value the relationships we develop with them. We have recently upgraded our facility adding a larger waiting room with separate dog and cat waiting areas as well as adding three additional exam rooms including a comfort room with private entrance. We have adopted numerous fear free techniques and truly believe in always finding new ways to improve our patients’ experience. While making consistent preventative care recommendations, we view our patients as individuals and tailor care and recommendations to their specific needs. We currently ha...ve 12 full-time and 3 part-time support staff members who are extremely knowledgeable and well trained. We utilize our staff’s skill set and weekly staff meetings keep everyone up-to-date, educated, and in sync.
