The FHSA is a full-service, academic hospital providing state-of-the-art, 24-hour, emergency, and multi-specialty care for small animals (cats, dogs, and zoological species) across New England. It is part of the Cummings School Veterinary Group (CSVG) comprised of 7 teaching hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic laboratories. The FHSA supports the teaching, research, and clinical care missions of the School. The annual caseload is approximately 35,000 cases per year, with revenue generation of approximately $35 million. Clinical care is provided by approximately 60 academic clinicians, 250 technical and support staff, 50 residents, 30 interns, and 120 veterinary students.
Reporting to the dean, the Hospital Director and Chief Executive Officer is a senior position providing leadership and oversight of the strategic vision, financial management, operations, medical care, human resources (faculty and staff), and infrastructure of the FHSA. This includes a key role in the proposed expansion of the FHSA physical footprint to meet its clinical, education, and research missions. Supported by a six-member hospital management group and an advisory board composed of the clinical section heads, the Hospital Director is responsible for ensuring the success of the FHSA.
Depending on the qualifications and interests of the successful candidate, a faculty appointment in the Department of Clinical Sciences is available.
