  • Hamilton

Website Hamilton Region Emergency Veterinary Clinic

The Hamilton Region Emergency Veterinary Clinic is a privately owned and operated (non-corporate) 24-hour emergency and referral centre for small animals in the Hamilton area.  Operating in a newly renovated, state of the art facility, we employ experienced and qualified professional staff including veterinarians, registered veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and client service representatives to service our clients and patients.  Our services include urgent medical examinations, advanced diagnostics such as in house lab, radiology and ultrasound, hospitalization and critical nursing care, and advanced surgical procedures (soft tissue and orthopaedic).

To create an environment where we provide not only exemplary medical care and client service, but it is also essential that we have someone to actively contribute to creating a supportive workplace for our team.  The Hospital Director plays a key role in achieving our goals and as such, has the complete authority over the operation of the business and practice in concert with the board of directors. This role serves as the coordinator and final authority of all business functions and the supervising agent of all hospital services and personnel.

While the candidate may not have the direct knowledge of a veterinarian regarding medicine, the Director must have sound knowledge of quality assurance and performance in veterinary medicine and may act in an advisory capacity to establish and supervise the medical protocols of the practice.

As the role requires skills from the various aspects of veterinary medicine and business, the Hospital Director should process knowledge, training, and experience in the areas of business management and operations, finance, effective communication including conflict resolution and leadership, and human resources.  This is a full-time, permanent, onsite position, and as this is a 24-hour hospital, flexibility in availability is required including weekends and holidays.

Possessing a veterinary license or having achieved registered veterinary technician status in the province of Ontario would be an asset.


To best support our team, we will support you through:

–        Competitive wage that is commensurate with training and experience

–        Robust health and dental benefits package including medical, health, dental and vision

–        Employee Assistance Plan

–        Paid vacation and sick days

–        Generous professional development allowance

–        Onsite parking

–        Discounted pet care, food, and supplies

We wish to thank all applicants for their interest in the HREVC, however; only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

The HREVC provides accommodation during all stages of the recruitment process. Should you require any accommodation, please advise us if you are contacted for an interview and we will work with you to meet your accessibility needs.
