Benning Animal Hospital is a 2.5-doctor practice that is dedicated to providing the most advanced medical care available with compassion and hospitality. From the friendly, helpful staff that guides you through each step, and the experienced and dedicated medical team, you can trust that we will provide the best care possible. We are the oldest veterinary practice in Columbus with families that have trusted and relied on us to take care of their pets for generations. We offer everything from urgent care to preventative medicine with state of the art technology and the most up to date and modern treatments available.
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.
