VCA takes pride in expanding the growth and skill set of new veterinarians. We welcome newly graduated veterinarians (and current veterinary students) to apply to this position where they will receive individualized support with our 6-month mentorship program and a collaborative hospital team environment.

We are located in a bustling area with many medical offices that serve our community. We have a wonderful clientele base that is thankful and respectful of our doctors and staff. Multiple of our employees are bilingual, and we love being able to serve our Hispanic community and make them feel comfortable with their pet's care. We have an amazing technical staff that are eager to help the doctor and they are highly skilled. We have several team members that have been here over 15 years.

Our hospital has recently updated anesthesia monitoring equipment. We have a brand-new Ultrasound unit; our dental unit is one year old and we have dental x-ray. We have completed the second stage of a hospital remodel.

We are looking for a motivated Doctor to assist us in our quickly growing hospital. Rotating Saturdays from 8-2pm, we are closed Sundays. No Emergency calls or shifts.

Nearby to the hospital there are multiple chain and family-owned restaurants. Never a lack of choices when eating out with friends or family. We are located within 20-30 minutes of the very popular suburbs Plainfield and Naperville. Both have beautiful downtowns with many shops and a river walk.

While the heart and history of Joliet is centered around the Des Plaines River, Joliet actually expands across both the Des Plaines and DuPage Rivers. Several other waterways traverse through the city limits, including Hickory Creek, Spring Creek, the historic Illinois and Michigan Canal, Jackson Creek, and Aux Sable Creek. Some small lakes and bodies of water include Chase Lake, Lake Juco, Michigan Beach, the Brandon Road Quarry, and Leisure Lake.
