Do something that means something. It’s not every day that your realize that everything you do matters to someone, but it’s true in this case. Each year, 15,500 animals come through our doors, inspiring a team of 130 mission-centered professionals to perform at a new level of medical excellence. Our work matters to those animals. It matters to those professionals, and it matters to the worried clients waiting for their friends. You could be at the center of it all, making a meaningful difference with every action.
Now’s your chance to influence the future of veterinary medicine. We are the only non-profit animal hospital in the Pacific NW, the first emergency animal hospital in the world, and one of the most prestigious specialty hospitals in the country. “We do all the hard things, all the time. And it’s amazing,” said Dr. Lee Herold, DVM, DACVECC. Does that sound amazing to you? Then we want to talk with you. We need a seasoned, fierce leader to take up the reigns of Chief Medical Officer and lead the hospital as we grow at unprecedented rates.
It’s an exciting time to be a part of our team. As we’ve grown with the support of the Portland community—a city loyal to local institutions and devoted to their animals—we’ve outgrown our space. Soon, we’ll remodel our already impressive facilities, making room for more specialty services and patient growth.
We are dedicated to technical innovation and customer service, and your leadership skills will be crucial in revamping our processes to meet the changing needs of our clients. You’ll be teaching thousands of veterinary professionals through our website atdove.org, healing thousands of animals, and making significant contributions to our medical policies, procedures, and hospital design.
Sound intriguing? Spend some time getting to know us. We’re looking forward to getting to know you.
