Are you someone who always wanted to own your own practice, but wasn’t sure how to go about doing it? Are you someone who always wanted to run your own show, but the risk of going it alone was too scary? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you want to meet me.
My name is David and over the past 10 years I’ve helped over 20 veterinarians own a significant ownership stake in the hospital we’ve built together, and I’m currently looking for Managing Partners (Medical Directors) to join me in launching PetHealth UrgentCare centers around the country. You can learn about me and what I’ve accomplished by visiting www.vmivet.com - www.VetMoves.com and www.PetHealthUrgentCare.com
So how does my business model work???
-I’m selective on who I partner with and if we agree to do this together you will own up to 30% of the PetHealth UrgentCare facility we open together
-My Vet Management Incorporated (VMI) company has a team in place that manages the back-end administration (site selection, lease negotiation, construction management, financing the project, equipment procurement, hiring/recruiting, software development, payroll management, HR support, marketing, analytics, bookkeeping, tax preparation etc). This means that you get to focus your efforts on what you do best which is delivering high quality medical care for sick pets and great experiences for pet parents.
-You will receive a generous Pro-Sal (no negative accrual), a Medical Director stipend, benefits to include health insurance and 401K and you receive your percentage of the profits.
-All of my hospitals are family owned (my wife Dr. Lori Hoe and I control them) which means that we are not backed by outside money which allows us to maintain a family-owned culture and it allows you to establish the culture you want for your hospital. We are not a Corporation with a big “C” and instead like to think of ourselves as a corporation with a small “c”.
Why Urgent Care?
-It only requires +/- 3,000SF and it works well in a high-traffic shopping center. This means that finding a space that will work to establish the service is easy, affordable, and quick to pull off.
-It’s a highly profitable and underdeveloped niche space in the industry that’s ripe for growth and development
-We can charge a premium over GP prices (think 50-100% higher)
-It’s easier to staff than a 24/7 emergency hospital, yet we can charge almost as much as an ER
-We won’t have to build a client base which means we will be busy faster than if we opened a GP together (I know this from experience).
Who should apply?
-Applicants will need a minimum of 3 years of experience. ER or Urgent Care experience is a plus but not expected.
-You will need to be willing to bet on yourself by risking some of your own hard-earned money next to some of my hard-earned money.
-You will need to be willing to work and staff Urgent Care hours (think 11am to 8pm 7X days per week or whatever hours we agree upon as making sense for your location)
-Preferably we can build this outside of any restrictive covenants you’ve signed, but challenging a non-compete is something I have experience in and will consider doing with you
-You will need to be a good human who treats people with dignity and respect and be someone who cares about diversity and inclusion such that others will want to follow you and work hard for you
-You (and a plus 1 if desired) will need to be willing and able to accept an all-expense paid trip to Charlotte NC where you will get to meet me and the VMI team
Why partner with me vs. going it alone or staying where you are as an Associate?
-I’ve opened 15 successful hospitals and I’m the one who created the only national mobile specialty medicine company with over 30 surgeons, internists and cardiologists. I have a great track record of success and I’ve never had a hospital that I’ve owned fail.
-I have experience in the Urgent Care space and I’ve developed a team that knows how to open and support new Urgent Care locations
-Owning up to 30% of something that is valuable and profitable is better than owning 100% of something that is not valuable and not profitable. The best way to build wealth as a veterinarian is to own equity in a successful practice. You can do this!
-I have corporate vendor relationships with the biggest suppliers and receive significantly better pricing than an owner of a single hospital would
My closing argument:
-If I pick you to partner with me and you pick me to partner with you we will have a lot of fun building something special together that you can finally call your own. If you believe in yourself, bet on yourself! Apply now. Let’s do this!
-3+ years of experience
-Desire to lead an Urgent Care hospital that you own
We are a family-owned business that helps veterinarians open and own their own hospital.
