Outstanding Individuals: Passionate About The Medicine, United By A Spirit of Collaboration

Designed to help realize our vision of becoming the Mayo Clinic of veterinary medicine, the Compassion-First Specialty Advisory Board (SAB), serves to engage, inspire and represent each and every medical team across our family of hospitals through organizational decision-making and collaboration. This esteemed board of veterinary professionals works in close partnership with our Medical Directors Advancement Council (MDAC) to ensure that the medicine is prioritized and at the forefront of decision-making, and is a true reflection and representation of each, and every, care team. 

Areas of support and expertise include:

  • Ideation and thought leadership around continuing education opportunities
  • Input and support for our Medical Directors
  • Input on new vendors and new equipment options
  • User feedback on Practice Information Management Systems (PIMS)
  • Review and feedback of marketing materials
  • Ethics, protocols, and scientific review for clinical studies

The compassionate and innovative medical leadership teams across our family of hospitals are guided by our core values of Collaboration, Empowerment, Integrity, Kindness and Community, as well as driven and committed to advancing veterinary care in efforts to improve patient outcomes. Each collaborative step forward brings up closer to realizing our vision.
