Veterinary Specialty Center


Buffalo Grove, IL

Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) is one of the nation’s oldest local and independently owned specialty and emergency hospitals. We don’t brag about much, but with over 40 years in business, we have matured to the point where we realize that veterinary medicine is about more than fixing dogs and cats or fancy equipment. We understand that veterinary medicine can have meaning beyond the nuts and bolts of a typical specialty and emergency hospital.

Our owners and staff share the belief that the enormous impact of the high-tech and state-of-the-art services we provide compels us to expand our mission. We not only want VSC to be a good company but an organization that does good; for our patients, clients, referring veterinarians, staff, community and the environment.

We take this social and environmental responsibility very seriously; it shapes our unique culture and guides our growth and business decisions.

  • It’s the reason we were named a Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplace for 2016
  • It’s the reason we are engaged in B-Corporation Certification
  • It’s the reason why we are the only hospital in Illinois to achieve VECCS Level I Trauma Certification

And it’s the unique quality that differentiates us from any other specialty hospital in the world.

We are looking for like-minded people who want to practice “veterinary medicine that matters” in a supportive, collaborative and loving environment. We want doctors who will bring their passion, their skills, and their ‘make the world a better place’ attitude to the north shore of Chicago.


We have positions available for oncology and radiation oncology in our thriving practice. So, whether you are just finishing a residency or are a seasoned veteran looking for a fresh start, if you share this vision, send us your resume.


We are looking to expand our oncology practice with an Oncologist and a Radiation Oncologist that shares our goals and values. Join a collaborative team of residency-trained and board-certified veterinarians in oncology, internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, nephrology, emergency and critical care, anesthesiology, radiology, surgery, dermatology, nutrition, rehabilitation and behavior. We also have the best team of technicians and in-house staff and administrators to assist in patient care.

VSC has many of the tools you need to get the job done with our on-site linear accelerator, digital radiography, CT and MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, echocardiography and video endoscopy. We also have an onsite veterinary diagnostic lab with a pathologist.
