Rockford is a unique place to live and work. Nicknamed the Forest City, we are known for cultural or historically significant venues like Anderson Japanese Gardens, Klehm Arboretum, Tinker Swiss Cottage, BMO Harris Bank Center, Coronado Theatre, and the Burpee Museum of Natural History. We are also home to the band Cheap Trick and the Phantom Regiment. We are close to outdoor recreational spots like Rock Cut State Park, Atwood Homestead County Forest Preserve, and Lowden State Park. Rockford is also centrally located one hour from Madison, WI, and a little over an hour from Chicago and is home to the Rockford Ice Hogs, the minor league partner to the Chicago Blackhawks! The movie "A League of Their Own" starring Tom Hanks was based on the infamous Rockford Peaches.
We offer generous salary, 401(k), medical benefits (including health, dental, and vision), CE allowance, professional dues and liability coverage. In addition, we also support employee wellbeing with paid vacation, an employee assistance program (EAP), growth opportunities, and reduced rates on voluntary benefits (including accident insurance, critical illness insurance, disability insurance, life insurance, identity protection coverage, and discounted auto and home insurance) and so much more.
We are so proud of our practice and would love to tell you about our community-based approach to veterinary care. Apply today!
