Our Home: Yorktown Heights is a thriving community in Northern Westchester. Only an hour north of New York City, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds–live in the beautiful Hudson Valley surrounded by forested mountains, and hit up the Big Apple when you want to experience the bustle of city life, or catch a Broadway show.
About Us: At Heights Hospital for Animals, our motto is"Where Your Pets are Our Family"
We place our employees at the center of our values. Without happy staff, we can't provide great service for our patients and clients. We do not tolerate abuse toward staff, pets or other clients, and that behavior results in termination from our practice. We expect all staff members to be professional and respectful to our clients, AND we expect the same level of respect from our clients. We want to retain the best clients, and we know that not all clients are for us. We do not want to be everything to everyone. We want to be the BEST providers to the BEST clients!
Our mission at Heights Hospital is to combine advanced medicine and technology with a comforting environment and happy employees in order to provide a convenient, comfortable experience to pets and their people.
Why do we do things differently? Because we know what it's like to love a pet as your family member. Because we are leaders in the veterinary field, and we are excited to grow, adapt and evolve with the world. Because our employees are truly terrific, they love their jobs and they enjoy making people and their pets feel safe, understood and happy. Because we, too, want to work and grow in a positive environment where we can laugh with our clients about silly stories or cry with our clients when they lose a beloved pet. Because we understand that time is money, and convenience is valuable to our clients. Because we want to be environmentally conscious, socially responsible, economically and creatively free in an industry that is controlled by large corporate practices. Because we truly want to make a difference in our community and the lives we impact every day.
How do we accomplish our mission? We recognize that our employees are the life-blood of the practice. Without them, we could not serve pets. Our employees come first, which includes paying a living wage, listening to their creative ideas on how to improve, providing continuing education so they can keep their skills relevant, providing job growth opportunities and treating them like family. The equation is simple: happy employees make happy pets and happy clients.
We rely on top quality equipment and cutting edge techniques to deliver the highest standard of care possible. We do this by investing in advanced diagnostic equipment such as our digital dental x-ray unit, ultrasound, TonoVet, and a full body DR digital x-ray machine. Our medical care is founded on appropriate diagnostic tools and tests to uncover the real cause of illness, not only to cure it, but to possibly prevent such illnesses from returning. Medical competency is an important foundation of our practice.
We know that healing is impacted by more than just medicine. We provide a comfortable environment by promoting peaceful and low-stress visits. We provide safe sedation for any pet who is fearful, anxious or aggressive to alleviate psychological stress to the patients and their parents. Adapting to our patients' needs is an important step in keeping them happy. We have comforting exam rooms with cozy blankets and lots of treats for your pet. We use comprehensive pain control on all surgeries and patients with painful conditions helping to eliminate the fear resulting from associating a veterinary hospital with a painful experience. Your pet's comfort is a priority.
Our Facility: Our practice offers digital x-rays, digital dental x-rays, in-house lab equipment, tono-vet, Ultrasound, dental equipment with w/high-speed handpieces, Feliway diffusers for our Cat-Only side, and modern anesthetic monitoring with BioNet, including pulse oximetry, NIBP, and ECG.
We also use the most cutting edge treatments including Zorbium, Cytopoint, Entyce/Elura, Apoquel, Simparica Trio and Bravecto. ALL surgeries receive IV catheters, fluids, full monitoring and full pain coverage.
Who We Are Looking For:
A new graduate or experienced veterinarian, mentorship provided for all veterinarians
Possess outstanding client communication skills
Enjoy building relationships with clients and patients
A dedicated clinician who takes pride in their daily work, wants to improve skills and knowledge and values working with other doctors
A practitioner who knows their worth, desires a healthy work-life balance and wants to maintain healthy boundaries with all aspects of their life
Heights Hospital for Animals is cozy small animal practice, serving the patients of Yorktown Heights, New York. We focus on providing top patient care rather than volume, so we get to know our patients and clients, and they get to know us.
