Points East Veterinary Specialty Hospital is seeking a Surgeon to join our hard-working, dedicated staff and expand our surgical department. Partnership and generous sign-on bonuses are available.

Why Points East Veterinary Specialty Hospital

Points East Veterinary Specialty Hospital, founded by Vets Pets in June 2015, brought specialty services to Eastern NC. Serving a vast region east of Raleigh to the coast, Points East VSH has matured into a 24/7/365 hospital with emergency, surgery, critical care, and diagnostic ultrasound services.

What started with the understanding that the region was ready for advanced, and local, specialty medicine, a surgery service splitting its time between two locations shared with after-hours emergency clinics, has grown to include multiple surgeons, a boarded criticalist, nine emergency veterinarians, and an enthusiastic support team working 24/7/365.

With three sister emergency practices, each within an hour of the hospital, Points East VSH enjoys the collaboration and camaraderie that comes with being a member of the Vets Pets family. Sharing ideas, inventory, staff, and protocols, the network of hospitals problem-solve together.

Points East Veterinary Specialty Hospital is located in the growing town of Wilson, NC, about 30 minutes outside of Raleigh. Wilson is a great place to call home with a charming downtown, convenient location, centuries of history, great hiking and biking, family-friendly amenities, and an excellent park system. Raleigh and the Triangle area of NC are consistently ranked as one of the most desirable places to live in the US. A recent study in 2019 ranked Raleigh #2 in the Top 100 Best Places to Live in the US. Raleigh was also recently listed as the #2 in the world by Numbeo in its quality-of-life index for 2020.

Land is cleared a few miles away from the current location right with plans moving forward for a 17,000 sq ft modern building.
