buttonPremier Veterinary Group is seeking a full time emergency veterinarian for our Chicago, Grayslake, Crestwood, and Kane County locations.

Why the Premier Veterinary Group? Like other specialty hospitals, we have the tools you need to succeed in your specialty: ultrasound, CT, endoscopy, full in-house lab, blood banking program, other specialties/specialists, etc... Most, if not all, of the specialty hospitals that are hiring will also have the equipment and the specialists; and most will also be very good at what they do. We offer the same AND we feel we stand apart because of what we believe.

We believe that everyone deserves to be treated well, deserves respect, honor, and dignity regardless of their position within our organization.
We are a team, a family where everyone brings value and is essential in our successful day to day endeavors. We hold very high the premise that any feedback should be constructive, not destructive or demeaning. We are very proud of the fact that we have a very low turnover rate and many of our family have been with us for over 10 years.

We believe that we should be supportive of each other and never have to compete for cases; rather the guiding principle should be that the needs of the patient dictate who is treating that case at any given time.

We believe that you should not have to be stressed out by your work environment. That if you see a better way, you should be empowered to engender change and not feel like your concerns are not heard. And you should never be penalized for bringing up a concern or suggestion; rather you should be encouraged to do so.

We believe that we are an extension of our referring veterinarian and we work hand in hand with him/her to provide the best care possible through that teamwork, and that he/she always feels supported by us.

We believe that everyone who joins our family, who refers to us, or who walks through our doors as a client should have a Premier experience.

What do you believe?
