"There are a lot of reasons why I love working at VCA, but for me, a couple of things really stand out. First, I get the benefits of working for a large company, but also being able to have that feeling of family when working with my team at the hospital. Secondly, is that Corporate allows all team members to think outside of the box, and not just at the hospital level. Everyone has the opportunity to suggest ways to enhance new technology, new processes, or general improvements for all of VCA. I know that I am appreciated in my role as a Hospital Manger and also as an individual at VCA."
