North Port St. Lucie Animal Hospital (NPSLAH)has been serving the Port St. Lucie area with the same attention to quality, affordability and friendly service for the past 30 years. Our family-friendly hospital offers advanced diagnostics, cold laser therapy, dentistry, surgery, boarding, and a welcoming highly-trained staff to care for all of your pets needs. The staff at NPSLAH is committed to our community. We regularly attend events with the Humane Society of St. Lucie County and we are the official sponsor of "Klutch", the St. Lucie Mets mascot.
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 veterinarians 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.

Port St. Lucie is one of the largest cities in Florida and it is bordered to the north and south by the very historic towns of Fort Pierce and Stuart, both of which are on the ocean.

Our hospital is proud to be part of the American Veterinary Group (AVG) of hospitals. AVG owns and operates 90+ veterinary practices throughout the Southern United States. As a hands-on operator of hospitals, we know that people make the difference between a good practice and a great practice. We pride ourselves on encouraging our practices to make medical decisions at the local practice level. As such, we do not provide any company-wide medical protocols and rely on the expertise of our teams to make decisions that best serve their clients and teams. All of our practices are unique - from our small animal companion general practices, to our UrgentVet locations, and our mixed animal and equine practices. We would love to discuss our current openings with you further to see if you might be a good fit for our team!
