Fall Creek Veterinary Medical Center seeks to add an additional, full- or part-time associate veterinarian to our fast-growing, full-service, 14-year-old small animal practice in the northeastern suburbs of Indianapolis near the Geist Reservoir. Since moving into our beautiful, brand-new, 8,000-plus square foot freestanding building in 2016, the practice has substantially increased its medical and surgical caseload. We are an AAHA-accredited hospital member.
We are in Hamilton County, consistently ranked one of the best places in America to live, and our well-educated clientele is generally very receptive to quality, progressive medicine.
The practice is privately owned, offering the flexibility to develop our own culture of warm professionalism and a tight bond with our clients, but also offers the benefits of a small multi-doctor practice that nurtures a collegiality in case consultations and strategic decision-making.
The staff is well-trained, friendly and helpful.
The hospital is equipped with digital radiography, new ultrasound unit, high-speed dental equipment, therapeutic laser, full in-house laboratory, and a cloud-based practice software. Dental radiography will be added this year.
After-hours emergencies are referred to local 24-hour emergency hospitals. Excellent specialty services are located ten minutes from us.
We are committed to consistently modify our approaches to medicine as new information in veterinary medicine becomes available.
The hospital is open daily Monday through Friday, and offers Saturday outpatient appointments from 8 AM to noon. Saturday office hours are rotated among the doctors. Work-life balance is important, with flexible scheduling available, to help with the various challenges of life and family, and encouragement of "non-veterinary" involvement and personal growth.
The Indianapolis area offers an affordable cost-of-living and abundant housing, and the hospital is located within the city of Fishers, in the most rapid-growing area of the state, with excellent schools and many recreational opportunities. The vibrant Indianapolis downtown, Broad Ripple, Fountain Square and Massachusetts Avenue are within a half-hour, with professional sports, cultural and dining opportunities. Similarly, rural countryside and picturesque small towns are also quite close.
