Be the one who lives and works where others vacation! Colorado Springs is home to Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty, a well-established and respected emergency hospital that also offers referral services in surgery, rehabilitation, neurology, internal medicine, cardiology and radiology (CT/MRI). Our ER service is the heart of our practice and is completely integrated with our specialty departments. That’s because we are ONE - One team. One purpose. One patient at a time. Other important ‘ones’ include: •One ownership model. We all work for one hospital and our patients belong to all of us. •One call, text or email is all it takes to be introduced to real people who care – for their co-workers, their community, and love caring for animals in such a beautiful place. •One life to live. We believe that we must surround ourselves by people and places that enrich our lives and bring out the best in us. Colorado Springs and Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty do both. Colorado Springs is home to Pikes Peak at 14,297 feet in elevation, Garden of the Gods, US Olympic Training Center, Space Foundation Headquarters and Discovery Center, US Air Force Academy, and so many more special places making it a spectacular place to call home – not just vacation. For outdoor enthusiasts, we are only a quick two hour drive away from world renowned Breckenridge Ski Resort and close proximity to other world famous ski resorts. There are over 100 miles of hiking, running, and biking trails right in our backyard. US News has recently ranked Colorado Springs as the #1 “Most Desired Places To Live.” Our view of Pikes Peak is breathtaking! A short hour drive to Denver allows easy access to "big city life". Our scheduling is based on balance of life and work. This would be a full time position with a base salary and a very competitive monthly percentage bonus without negative calculations. Our ER doctors do, on occasion, rotate through our satellite urgent care clinics within the Colorado Springs area (Monument and Old Colorado City). We will consider a signing bonus and/or moving expense assistance for the right candidate.

About Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty
Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty (PPERS) is a 24 hour emergency veterinary practice with integrated specialty services. With over 100 staff members, including 14 full time ER veterinarians, we are able to offer gold standard patient care within our community and beyond. Despite our large size, the ER department is very tightly knit and offers a very familial, comforting environment. We are always open to exceptional candidates to join our family.
PPERS was founded in 2005. It has grown from one full time doctor (our owner Dr. Lee Wilwerding) to 14 full time ER doctors and counting. We now also boast a wide array of specialty services including neurology, internal medicine, surgery, radiology, and soon-to-be cardiology. Our ER doctors do have a wide and variable surgical patient load and have the option to call in our soft tissue surgeon when needed (this is not required). The ER and specialty services are very closely integrated to facilitate a very streamlined approach to our patient care.
PPERS also has two satellite urgent care clinics that together allow us to provide emergency veterinary services to the entire Colorado Springs metropolitan area as well as western mountai...n communities and the south Denver suburbs. Our ER doctors on occasion will incorporate shifts at these urgent care facilities into their monthly schedules.
