Since opening in 2010, VREC has grown to over 50 clinicians, technicians, support staff, and client service representatives to support the growing need for veterinary care in the area. We consistently strive to improve and are proud of the extensive list of referring veterinary relationships. To help advance the knowledge and skillset of our staff, we frequently offer continuing education seminars, lunch & learns, advanced learning opportunities, mentoring opportunities, internships/externships, and more. Additionally, our clinicians and technicians are eligible for a continuing education stipend.
Our staff prides themselves on treating fellow employees like family – an inclusive, supportive, social, and communicative family. We understand how work/life balance plays into the health and wellbeing of all our staff and we encourage the use of paid time off (which is a great way to get out and experience all the wonderful things the Northeast PA region has to offer!)
About our Facility:
Our facility is well-equipped with a dedicated surgical suite, new monitoring equipment, in-house labs, digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, mechanical ventilator, complete nuclear medicine capabilities, and Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner on staff. VREC is proud to offer the region’s only 24/7/365 pet MRI suite in the northeast (outside of Cleveland).
About the Region:
VREC is nestled in beautiful Northeastern Pennsylvania (“NEPA”). A short drive from Scranton & Wilkes-Barre metro area, Clarks Summit is an affluent suburb with continued growth and plenty of amenities. Whether you prefer an urban, suburban, or rural community, the region has affordable housing prices and jobs that provide sizable discretionary spending. The region has an array of top-performing “Blue Ribbon” public and private schools, is home to several nationally-recognized 2- and 4- year colleges and universities and a medical college.
NEPA is a unique blend of culture and history – and truly has something for everyone. The region boasts a diverse and robust culinary scene, venues big and small for live music, art and cultural events, historical landmarks, casino resorts, museums, athletic events, child-friendly activities, and shopping destinations. The landscape is lush and abundant with wildlife; many take advantage of our beautiful surroundings by frequenting ski resorts, golf courses, campgrounds, state parks, and more. We are home to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, an AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees Baseball team, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team, and are close to NASCAR’s Pocono Raceway. Major-league sporting events are just a few hours away. For more information on the region, please visit DiscoverNEPA.
