VREC Westbury is a busy, 24-hour specialty referral center. We are a Trauma Level 1 Certified Hospital, offering a highly qualified team including board-certified Criticalists and certified technicians including an ECC VTS. Our hospital is also the ONLY Specialty & Emergency hospital on Long Island to have a Social Worker!
Collaboration is the hallmark of our culture at VREC Westbury. Throughout our hospital, you will see doctors consulting with each other to ensure each patient has access to exceptional care. We are a teaching hospital, which further encourages collaboration as we participate in rounds and case presentations with our intern class.
We strive to provide outstanding patient care and empathetic communication with pet owners and to work as a true partner with our referring community. We also like to have fun at work. Don’t be surprised to find the Medical Director setting up a scavenger hunt or the Hospital Manager firing up the grill in the backyard. Be prepared for some friendly competition and lots of laughs during our annual Spirit Week event.
To provide world-class care with a hometown feel we need to provide our Associates with advanced diagnostic and treatment options. Our equipment includes a 128 slice CT, 1.5 Tesla MRI, two GE Logic ultrasounds, a portable ultrasound for ICU, and a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. You will have the ability to work alongside specialists in Internal Medicine, Surgery, and Oncology.
