Executive Medical Director/Veterinarian Criticalist – Chico, CA – 6346

This is a new venture within the existing veterinary and humane nonprofit. The current organization is highly regarded in the community and attracts excellent leadership and support staff. There is a daytime veterinary facility with two doctors and support staff.

This is an opportunity to create a legacy of emergency care. We are seeking a compassionate, creative person with a desire to make a lasting difference in communities where emergency care is unavailable, where communities will support the team and meet its needs for growth and investment.

We seek a Criticalist who wants to establish an organization that is stable, lasting and free from financial challenges. We can attract generosity and community commitment within the umbrella of a nonprofit charity.

We are seeking a boarded criticalist to provide the reputation, skills and experience to attract and train a team that will be committed to this important work. By providing a platform for graduating veterinarians with interest in emergency care to intern under the supervision of this doctor, we believe we can establish, support and maintain excellent emergency service. With no competition for approximately 100 miles, the opportunity is as great as the need.

All doctors and support staff will report to this person until such time as the practice growth demands further management. For example, as support staff members are added a supervisor will be placed in a middle management position.

There are a number of communities that will be served by this emergency service which will be headquartered in Chico. Chico has a CSU campus of undergraduates and masters’ students. It is growing and attracting more high technology and new venture companies recently. It has a reasonable real estate and cost of living profile that is attractive to people from the Bay Area and southern CA. as well as a richer cultural life than similarly sized cities. The surrounding communities are largely prosperous agricultural communities and small commuting locations.

Our new humane society’s 9,000 sq ft facility houses a full-service hospital to which appropriate additional services for emergencies can be added. A criticalist will supply the expertise, leadership and coaching required to create a team of excellent professionals. Administrative and other management tasks will be handled through the existing support structure leaving ample time and flexibility to build and support a team.

This is a new undertaking, but the group is comprised of experienced entrepreneurs, managers, and veterinarians.

The position includes:

  • Generous salary including an annual bonus
  • Reasonable relocation costs
  • Generous continuing education allowance and health benefits
  • Paid maternity leave for ALL new parents
  • Inclusive team where equality is not negotiable
  • Excellent work life balance
