VCA Animal Care Center of Sonoma County is a large, 24-hour referral and emergency hospital located in beautiful Sonoma County, California.  Current services include surgical oncology (including a surgeon who completed a surgical oncology fellowship), surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, cardiology, internal medicine and radiology.

This is an opportunity to join a cohesive team and build on the successes of the existing radiology service in one of VCA’s premier animal hospitals. It also happens to be an area of the country known not only for delicious food and wine, but also fresh air, great weather and beautiful landscapes. If you are looking for high-end country life, then Sonoma County is the place for you!

The hospital in its former life was a movie theater, so space is ample at the hospital, thus allowing for services to grow without restriction. Our facility provides a great working environment with on-site CT, 1.5T MRI, nuclear medicine and fluoroscopy and is complemented by a dedicated and skilled, experienced and compassionate technical/support staff.

The Radiologist—under the guidance of the Medical Director and with the support of the Regional Medical Director—carries out VCA’s promise to our clients: making their pet’s health our top priority and excellent service our goal.
