Parkway Animal Hospital is located in Panama City, Florida. Our hospital is a fast-paced, multi-doctor, small animal hospital located just five miles from the beach! We have been serving the Panama City community for many years and have a loyal clientele base of small animal, exotic, and wildlife patients. Our practice is well equipped to provide high quality care with ultrasound, therapy laser, multiple surgery tables, several anesthetic machines, a dental machine, and digital x-rays. Our practice was also renovated in 2018 to provide a beautiful and serene aesthetic for our clients, patients, and team members.
The Lead Veterinarian serves as the medical leader of the practice, fostering a positive and collaborative work environment that results in an excellent treatment experience for the patients and clients we serve, as well as an excellent employment experience for the practice’s patient care team.
The Lead Veterinarian works with the associate veterinarian and the Regional Medical Director to help ensure that quality and appropriate veterinary medicine is performed within the practice. Additionally, they partner with the Practice Manager in matters of general management, staffing/scheduling, as well as ensuring that operational and financial goals are being met.
This position will be supported in-hospital by the previous lead veterinarian, so we are happy to consider veterinarians with strong leadership experience or less experienced veterinarians with goals of leadership in the future.
