Working at Summit


Our team has been carefully built with great attention to fit and teamwork (our staff frequently form friendships and social groups outside of work). Collaborative case management happens both during daily cageside (current Zoom) rounds and independently throughout the day. 


Specialty departments include cardiology (7 day) ophthalmology (M-Th), internal medicine (7 day), oncology (M-F), neurology (7 day), radiology (M-Fri), and surgery (7 day). Sustainable excellence is our priority, and we’ve put multiple structures in place to help reduce burnout, so you can provide the best care and live your best life.


Our veterinarians form collegial relationships with referring veterinarians and maintain a strong referral base that benefits the entire hospital. We encourage our ER doctors to participate in RDVM CE presentations and outreach efforts.


We have grown steadily in our 12-year history, but we are still a young developing practice with a lot of heart. We need talented folks like you and your friends (don’t worry…we have PLENTY of room to fit in more folks like you) to help us keep growing, thriving, and delivering the absolute best in patient and client care

From the great outdoors (rocky coastline, teeming forests, towering mountains, and all the wide open spaces in between) to the bustling PNW city scene (food and drink, art exhibits, live music, street festivals, and farmer’s markets, just to name a few), you’ll find plenty to love about this place we call home.
